European Union http://wamc.org en Herbert London: European Future on The Ropes http://wamc.org/post/herbert-london-european-future-ropes <p>&nbsp;</p><p>Based on the accumulation of recent reports, Europe is among the &ldquo;walking dead.&rdquo; The recent elections in Greece and France indicate that the respective populations are resistant to austerity measures. Despite insolvency, or in France&rsquo;s case the prospect of insolvency, Europeans are so committed to their entitlements, they won&rsquo;t give them up. Claims that a higher millionaire tax will offset the deficit provides a frission for socialists, but does little to offset the financial imbalance.</p> Wed, 23 May 2012 16:27:56 +0000 39582 at http://wamc.org
