Mario Soares — Europe on the Edge of the Abyss

In this column, Mário Soares, former president and prime minister of Portugal, writes that the economic policies being enforced in the so-called “periphery” of the eurozone threaten to destablise the entire Union. Fuelled by a neoliberal ideology that puts usurious markets before citizens, the austerity regime could result in a regression of civilization.

That's more than a bit disingenuous of him!

It's far more accurate to say that the elites of all the periphery countries are ACCEPTING this ... on behalf of their 99% (you know, the ones actually being looted).
