RE: A Model for the Western World?


You are aware, that every country has his own way? And to compare Ecuador, with all its own caracteristics with whole europe, its somehow strange.

Rafael Correa was very succesful, as it seems, but he did it in his own environment, its own politics, in its own way. I do not understand, what do you want to take from this and put it on europe?

RE: A Model for the Western World?

It's a model, because its present polity is not fanatical "austerianism".
There's no such thing as a "special" environment vis-a-vis finance. We no longer live in the gold standard age, we live in the fiat age. All countries, including Somalia, can apply the principles of modern money/modern economy to foster their own domestic markets, instead of living under the shackles of neocolonialist policies.
At present, the EU has no surplus recycling system and the Maastricht Treaty's economic tenets are an abject neoliberal nightmare, not to mention how arbitrary the figures in the treaty are.

Here's the modest proposal of Yanis Varoufakis on how to deal with the euro crisis.
