first of all I will write a bit of the situation here where I live, just to give you in idea what I'd in mind posting this thread.
I'm living in Germany. Just today the news told us that we have the lowest level of youth unemployment in all of europe. In Italy, on the other hand, it keeps rising. In Greece more than 50% of the youth are unemployed. A big german magazine (Die Spiegel) had a story on the exodus of Italians.
If I hear or look at the international debate on the topic of the economic crisis, there is a huge difference between what we discuss here and what is discussed just across the borders (pretty much in any direction). Germany, for example, refuses the idea of euro-bonds (getting a loan for a country together as the EU). Pretty much everyone else seems to be promoting the idea. It seems, the discussion in germany is isolated in a way which frightens me. Another big weekly newspaper (Die Zeit) wrote that Germany is on the way to ruin the continent the third time in a 100 years by not helping the other countries in the euro zone. Still, there is nearly no public debate on that topic.
I would be very interested to hear your take on what is happening in the world in that regard. What is the discussion where you live? Does the crisis effect you or people you know in any way? Is there a public debate on that topic? What do you personally think about it? What do you think is the reason for all that shit going on? Do you have an idea of a solution?
(I hope there is not another ongoing thread about this. The threads I found are dead.)
