European Union To The Rescue

The powerful European Central Bank [ E C B ] i...Image by U-g-g-B-o-y-(-Photograph-World-Sense-) via Flickr

Like a knight in shining armor the European Union rode in with a loan package that with the support of the International Monetary Fund could reach one trillion dollars or if you prefer 750 billion euro's. This loan package is further supported by the European Central Bank wish indicated they would buy both government and private debt bonds.

World markets rose sharply with the news of this rescue package and most currencies either stabilized or showed marked increases.

Now for the bad news, Money Magazine Hoss questions the wisdom of loaning more money to already cash poor countries as a way to make that country or countries more solvent. Only a change in financial philosophy can accomplish this. For example Greece has about one third of there citizens on the government payroll. It is time for this to stop. The Governments of the weaker economic countries must implement strong and realistic cutbacks or this bailout plan will eventually fail.

Money Magazine Hoss and millions of other families around the world manage to successfully create household budgets that enable them to survive in tough economic times, why can't governments do the same?

However, maybe this crisis will wake people up to the fact that there is no free ride, we must all contribute as best we can, so that all our societies can survive and prosper.

Stay on Track,
