Dead Global Economy Walking
Whether the world economy is fully globalized or not is a matter of debate, but it’s easier to say there’s a strong… stitched together… connection between US and European markets. Lately, it’s driven by the willingness of leaders in both regions to bailout failing banks, businesses, governments, and almost any other entity that would probably be better off going bust and clearing a path for future growth.
Maybe the US sneezed and the Europeans got sick, or the other way around… but, regardless of the order, this Frankenstein disease has spread far and wide.
