This is one scary graphic

By | September 17, 2012

In case you are the type of person who reads graphics instead of text: things look bad in the Euro zone. Look at how quickly the curvature on that balance line changes – someone's house of cards is going to tumble with dramatic consequences. That's a bubble just waiting to burst. The question is, how big should we let the bubble get? The ECB 'commitment' to upholding the current status quo is… a ver unusual status quo. This sort of status quo is not enough to reduce the bubble.
