The OP article is full of shit and nonsense.   I suggest to read decent newspapers/magazine with real and full background info.   here is one :   http://www.spiegel.de/international/

I have passed dozens of "dooms days" --- never knew about them so they would have been a surprise.? As they never happened ?? They were NOT a surprise. :scratch_head:

Just one mans opinion in the article!

 

Yeah, there may be the odd EU country default, but its not the end of the world, it happened before "ARGENTINA" very tough for a while, currency de-valued 50%, unemployment 50%. Now its a buoyant economy, 7% pa growth, unemployment down to 7%.

What you might call re-alignement of the economy.

 

I just can't see Israel attacking Iran without the nod from Washington, if they do, then for sure oil prices will surge + world inflation.

My :scratch_head: for what its worth.

"The odd EU country default"? We are talking potentially of countries like Greece, Italy, Spain, Ireland. It might not be the end of the world but it could very well be the end of the EU. Not particularly surprising though. The European countries rarely agree on anything, and in my opinion the EU was doomed to failure from the start. The fact that the last two World Wars started there isn't a coincidence.

Yeah, the whole idea behind the EU was originally political, to prevent further European wars, Churchill was even in favour of it.

They let to many lame ducks in though.

I have been intensely following the Euro in the news and watching both Italy and Greece. There are severe problems with the EU. I can see some serious measures happening to gain control of it. Greece has in one theory defaulted when they agreed to wipe 50% off the books yet they do not call it that. It is a bailout. Funny how you can avoid terms that send the stock market into panic.

 

You are seeing people revolt against leadership and give me give me give societies. This is the fall of any democracy when the sick lame and lazy become the majority. The question is how do governments handle the now cuts that must be made to salvage the government.

 

Greece and Italy will both default and Ireland is not far behind. The upheaval of people will be the next story... Stay tuned.

Of course I hope you are wrong but if Europe was such a powder keg, following the content of previous posts, then a UE was and is the best answer.
