Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Keynes said
The old saying holds. Owe your banker £1000 and you are at his mercy; owe him £1 million and the position is reversed.
Addendum to Keynes: if the bank has written CDS for £1 billion of your debt you hold the entire world economy at your mercy.

Economics is politics by other means
