The PIIGs a.k.a the circular firing squad

One wonders if the Euro will survive. The pound and the yen are also besotted with enormous debt and unfavorable demographics. The dollar is doomed as well.  Who wants to buy the best looking horse in the glue factory? That’s basically your choice if you hold cash in these “soon to be” pieces of doggy doo-doo.

  1. I had seen the graphic you used in this post somewhere else in the blogosphere a little while ago.

    But when I heard you describe it as a “circular firing squad,” I was immediately reminded of the final scene in Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” – affectionately known as the “Mexican Firing Squad.”

    Fast forward to 3:50 in the clip for the denouement.

    It’s a graphic scene no doubt, but you seem cynical enough to enjoy the cinematic analogue.

    Cheers,
