    Thanks to writers like Fred, at least some of us can appreciate what’s going on in greece!

    Hey, Fred, what should Obama be doing to support the Greeks? How has he been culpible in allowing financiers to ravage the living conditions of ordinary people around the world?

    Dan;
    It’s the US version of financialized Wall Street swindling that has caught Greece in its ravenous maw. Interestingly however, Obama pushed the ECB to come up with the big 750 million euro bank bailout to “save the euro.” You’ll recall, the US was very worried that the euro would replace the dollar as the international currency of choice/trade. I guess saving banks and their oligarchy of owners means much more than national interest these daze…
