Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And yet the Tories as well as the members of The Troika manage to think well of themselves, just as did the top officials in the Nazi Government under Hitler. This is where the need for TINA becomes especially important. It enables those who embrace TINA to rationalize that they are only doing what has to be done. That is another major reason for the resilience of the CW in economics - it justifies those in power doing what they really want to do and also what they are under great pressure from their wealthy backers to do. That psychological gallon of salve covers over anything that might be annoying from a vestigial conscience.
