I think it's about time Germany pulled out of the EU and brought back the much beloved Mark. The normal joe public doesn't give a flying f*ck for the EU and think we'd be better off not being in it at all. All it's brought is worry and taxes. The only people benefitting from the EU are the 'elected' EU politicians, imo.

What about Ireland or Iceland? Are they southern european countries? Common guys... What is the role of semi-peripheric economies in the European Union? High interest rates benefiting central banks. The financial system is responsible for this crisis, and unless people stand up against this crap they are going to continue this gangrape of "small" economies.
I have many Portuguese friends, they are decent people and I hope they manage to overcome this situation.

They are producing and exporting industrial nations... So the others that consume more than they produce lend their money from us.

Re: --- BREAKING --- Portugal Govt nears Collapse Amid Massive Debt Crisis
i believe the best way to own the world, is to make it go bankrupt, so you can buy it for dirt cheap.. so inevitably you just shuffle around the dirty laundry endlessly across as many borders and sovereign nations as you can, until finally, there is enough to fuck everyone... i think that's the plan...
i would not invest in the stock market this year. i'd invest in physical commodities and hide them....

Portugal gov't nears collapse amid debt crisis

LISBON, Portugal (AP) -- Portugal's main opposition parties told the beleaguered minority government they won't budge from their refusal to endorse a new set of austerity measures designed to ease a huge debt burden that is crippling the economy. The new steps are likely to be rejected in a parliamentary vote expected Wednesday and the timing could not be worse. A defeat in the vote, Prime Minister Jose Socrates warned, would trigger his government's resignation, consigning Portugal to at least two months of political limbo just as officials were hoping to boost investor confidence in the country's future. "At this point, a political crisis is a big push towards the country resorting to outside help," Finance Minister Fernando Teixeira dos Santos said. The national political crisis also threatens to set back Europe's broader plan to stamp out the debt market jitters The national political crisis also threatens to set back Europe's broader plan to stamp out the debt market jitters.

It's the will of the occupiers that Germany has to transfer its wealth to other countries.
The E.U. was invented to keep Germany down. Same with the Euro. Since Germany is no sovereign nation w/o a constitution there's nothing the Germans can do. It's up to Finland,The Netherlands etc. to end this insanity

You are right about that, but there are other problems in Portugal. Corruption and misuse of the public money are the biggest. Unfortunately getting in the Euro zone was a terrible act for us. We lost our sovereignty and control of our currency. Portuguese people are hard workers but the political parties are corrupt as hell. It is a well oiled machine.

Most people missed THIS STORY in all of the craziness three days ago:


NEW YORK FEDERAL RESERVE CONFIRMS
INTERVENTION IN THE CURRENCY MARKETS

Friday, March 18, 2011

[link to www.chron.com]


The New York Federal Reserve Bank confirmed that it
intervened in currency markets on Friday for the first time
in more than a decade.


The disclosure came a day after the Group of Seven major
industrialized nations pledged in a statement to join in a
coordinated effort to weaken the Japanese yen. The yen has
surged in the last week to post-war record levels following
the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

A spokesman at the New York Fed, which operates as the
agent of the U.S. Treasury in currency operations,
confirmed that it had intervened. The last time the U.S.
government intervened in currency markets was the fall of
2000 when it sold dollars and bought euros to bolster the
fledgling European currency.



The spokesman refused to provide any details on the amounts
of the intervention or what currencies were involved.



A stronger yen threatened to deal another blow to the
fragile Japanese economy by depressing the country's
exports.
