Juncker’s €315bn […]

Juncker’s €300 Billion Plan is “Funny Money”

Mario Draghi once again surfaced this morning to promise to do “whatever it takes” to help the Eurozone. Draghi has done this anytime the EU markets drop ever since the bottom in the summer of 2012.
It’s amazing to watch, particularly when you consider that it […]

Italy is a country of entrepreneurs and of vibrant small enterprises. Or was. Now these businesses are dying.
Of its 5.3 million companies (as of December 31, 2013), 3.3 million are small, often family-owned outfits, according to Rome-based credit information provider Cerved Group. And another […]

EU Disharmony on the Upswing
The bureaucracy in Brussels finds itself more and more often in rows with prominent European politicians. This decline in political harmony is actually fairly typical for a period of secular economic decline. It is indirect confirmation that said decline is far […]
