Greece Deal Shows Hostility between Schäuble and Varoufakis - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Varoufakis' spell had been broken -- in Schäuble's mind, at least.
More like vice-versa... Schauble's model is outdated and broken, leaving the hopes of Europe broken under its yoke.
Millions suffer and die so a few obscenely rich people can gamble other people's money with no moral hazard and when their profit arrow misses the target they bring out the rules (which they themselves have broken when convenient) and blithely claim to have the answers for all countries, even as their own country itself is starting to feel the cruel pinch of their delusional, heartless policies.
Schauble needs to back away slowly from his extremist position before he finds himself alone and stranded by the rest of Europe.
(Who have learned through watching the PIIGS suffer that their Grand Plan for European Economic Unity was a two-edged sword that could only ever have sustainably succeeded were every country in the EU in a perfect perma-heaven presided over by Our Lady of Perpetual Growth surrounded by her retinue of gossamer confidence fairies, all riding twinkly pink unicorns.)
All cashing in on hail to the eternal bubble machine!
Try to look Serious as you take your chips to be cashed, while the casino collapses into rubble behind you...
