Here’s some more on the situation in Greece. When I see a blog post titled “The Scariest Chart in Europe Just Got Even Scarier,” I typically think the author is invoking some grand hyperbole.
Perhaps not in this case.
Here’s Derek Thompson at The Atlantic:
Thompson points us to a link that draws this conclusion: “Spain is doomed and Greece is toast.” Of course, last year we pointed to Michael Lewis’s similarly dire predictions for Greece, where he observes “the closer you look, the worse it gets.” He concluded Greece is simply incapable of reform in its current form.
That unemployment bar looks like a big fuse.
