But they are – bankrupt and well-armed. … The economic attacks against Greece and Ireland are provoked only in order to reduce the sovereignty of the European currency and Europe as a whole. Why is the euro stronger today than the dollar – at least because EU debt is lower than the United States’.’” (Source:

My Comment: More and more people begin to realize that the future is only possible within the framework of the economy of reasonable (necessary) consumption, in complete similarity and balance with nature, in the unity of all people according to the principle of mutual guarantee.
