I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

Its a preposterous idea and i think it was meant tongue-in-cheek.  Not so preposterous though according to some commentators for Germany to put their hands in their pockets and pay off Greek debts


I am quite serious. Assume all PIGS states could start over with zero debts - what makes you think that they wouldn't accumulate new debts soon?

You see, our current political and economic system sets a very strong incentive for politicians to cut taxes and increase expenses, doesn't it? As a politician, you are considered sucessful if you achieve tangible results - and those have to be paid for. And you will be reelcted if the economy runs well - which it does if you spend much and ease taxes. Debts will have to be taken care off by your successor... You see thise behaviour in veritually all representative democracies (including the US).

This used to work, as governments could simply print more money when debts grew too much, so inflation took care of the issue (which is why countries like the US and Japan don't struggle, ableit having similar debt levels like the PIGS). In the Euro zone, this is no longer possible - which was also the reason why the nations had to pay considerably lower interest rates after entering it.

So if we don't change anything and another country simply pays for our debts, we will simply buy time - but the issue would still not be solved.

It is a fundamental failure of the modern world.

Meddling by governments never fixed any problem.

THAT would be a solution indeed - but this solution is even viable now, that the debts exist. A bailout is by no means necessary to solve the issue. It would even destroy the trust of the markets and push up interest rates for the future Union...

So let's hope that our leaders listen to your advice and unite the states of Europe further, so that Europe's and our entire world's economies may return to growth..
