Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To put it another way, democracy doesn't work when electors and especially economists and bankers have the emotional and collective sophistication of two year olds.

'More for me - less for you' is a spectacularly stupid political position. The fact that it's the default among the investors (i.e. those whose political influence actually counts for something in setting policy) doesn't alter its fundamental knuckle-dragging idiocy.

We don't need financial solutions - we need a fundamental overhaul of left-ish narratives which attack and destroy Hayekian nonsense, without legitimising it as a valid world view first.

Some things are not even wrong - and that includes almost everything the financial classes have been telling the rest of the world since at least the 1980s.
