‘The tremendous backlash against the austerity approach that Germany has been pushing. All over Europe, prominent politicians and incumbent political parties are being voted out. In fact, Nicolas Sarkozy has become the 11th leader of a European nation to be defeated in an election since 2008. We have seen governments fall in the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Greece.

    I read an inscription from an Egyptian tomb once, it translated as ” Oh artisan, thou art the perfect man”. It seems that a return to agrarian self sufficient countries trading but backed by gold is the answer, and one that is quite simple to achieve.
