  • 1. Draghi: Merkels New SarkozyYet again!Colloquial:Countries borrow money.They invest the money in economic development.The economy grows.Revenues increase.They repay the bonds with the increased revenues.MerkelomicsCountry borrow money with strict conditions.They pay their bills.They fire people, cut wages, raise taxes.The economy contracts.Revenues decline.The loans come due.They borrow more money with strict conditions to pay the bills.Draghis plan has the markets moving upward. This does not help the Greek busdriver. If the Greek bus driver owned stock in the Athens Bus Company, the argumentcould be made that he benefits from the strong market. He doesnt own stock in theAthens Bus Company.For well over a year Ive blogged about the need for capital investment, economicdevelopment and growth.

This explains why the Merkelomics isnt working, doesnt work,wont work, and cant work.
