Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It appears to me that the vast European investment in CDOs and swaps is a limiting factor on what US officials can do with the AIG and Citibank fiasco.

Ireland alone has such a massive holding of US debt "assets" that a radical revaluation here seems like it could tip it over.
