    I agree, but some people have so much money they need to put it somewhere and loaning it to countries at high interest rates is the best place to park that money. Since that country will only be able to pay the interest at most and not the principal, it will be profitable for a long time to come.

    Bankers are your slave masters. Economic slavery is alive and well.

    If you want to get all arrogant, selfish and nationalistic the natural Irish response is to reactivate the IRA. There are consequences to these decisions.

    Do you have any idea what a disaster to the world economy could ensue after a significant sovereign western nation (or 3) declares bankruptcy and repudiates its debts?
