Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

It's mad, you are all blaming the EU for the collapse of several economies in the Eurozone, but fail to see that was the result of corruption and financial mismanagement in those sovereign member states. We tend to forget it's a global financial crisis, and how this all started in first place was the result of bad banking practices from the employers of many people on this very forum.
They might not have flipped the switch, however, it is their fault that the stagnation and prolonged austerity has created a constant state of misery and poverty across the eurozone.. which, I hastened to add, shows no sign of improving.

See here an article from 2014. Funny how we were all in agreement then

All of the suffering in Europe inflicted in the service of a man-made artifice, the euro is even more tragic for being unnecessary, writes Joseph Stiglitz
Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, is University Professor at Columbia University.
