    I'm from UK but I must admit I've never heard of France and Germany being broke, anything but.

    Yes, it is happening. But it isn't "old" Europe that's hurting. They'll suffer a bit, a bit but not as bad as the wacko claims in the video/radio clip. But the USA is going to suffer BIG time, despite any "bail out." What confounds me is how few (as in almost no one) paid any attention to this when I mentioned it in several posts almost a year ago.

    'Mericuh, land o' the disbelievers (until the hurricane, earthquake, or financial disaster hits). And even then, only those directly touched by catastrophe really pay any attention.

    And have a fabulous day, all! :biggrin1:

    Well those 2 countries rely on mainly exports. When your currency is higher in value, companies tend to lose (or not make nearly as much) money from exporting their products

    Nobody seems to realize that if the USA fails EVERYONE fails. They (other Countries) may hold on a bit longer but they will fail eventually.
