World Financial Crisis Part 4
The Coming European Debt Wars EU Countries sinking into Depression by Prof. Michael Hudson
Bankers in Sweden and Austria, Germany and Britain are about to discover that extending credit to nations that can’t (or won’t) pay may be their problem, not that of their debtors. No one wants to accept the fact that debts that can’t be paid, won’t be. Someone must bear the cost as debts go into default or are written down, to be paid in sharply depreciated currencies, but many legal experts find debt agreements calling for repayment in euros unenforceable. Every sovereign nation has the right to legislate its own debt terms, and the coming currency re-alignments and debt write-downs will be much more than mere “haircuts.”
"Toll booth economies" Debts that can not be paid won't be. The fight is on. It should be an interesting decade.
