    Default EU drowning in debt

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...se-five-charts

    For European banks, it’s a headache that just won’t go away: the 944 billion euros ($1.17 trillion) of non-performing loans that’s weighing down their balance sheets.
    Thank god we are walking away from this ticking timebomb. The EU "booming" economy is smoke and mirrors....

    The amount of debt is not important. Ability to pay debt is what matters.
    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath
