The Next Global Depression
This from Tyler Cowen: "6. Basically the ECB is monetizing bad government debt claims." I think the net result of all this will be that Northern European governments and banks will be able to paper over Southern European's debts for a time but the cumulative result is that moral hazard has become more pronounced and global in nature. Increasingly it seems that the counter measures to this recession will be the proximate cause for a global depression.
