» Rewriting Economics: It's All in the Flow


I am writing this just upon my return from a couple of weeks in Britain and Continental Europe, at a time that just so happens to be pivotal for the survival of the European Monetary Union, if not for the EU trading bloc altogether.


Since SNS members are well familiarized with my many predictions on the reasons for the failure of the EMU, I won't re-pave that road in this discussion. Rather, I'd like to share a series of thoughts that occurred to me this week as I listened to the European debate over debt and obligations, and watched Merkozy (as they're now called) kick two deserving politicos right out of their Greek and Italian offices.
