Economic Tremors - by Stephen Lendman

The Eurozone is slowly collapsing.

Most disturbing, says Chapman, is that central banks, "governments and financial communities have no idea how to end the ongoing" crisis. "All they can come up with is to throw more money at" it.

Anger portends much greater amounts because policy measures exacerbates conditions instead of alleviating them.

Chapman expects eventual Eurozone dissolution. He estimates troubled economies need up to $6 trillion infused. About one-fourth of that at best may be forthcoming, he believes.
