Thought of the day

A quick ranking of the world's most "miserable" countries, based on the conventional measure of the Misery Index which is simply the Unemployment Rate plus Inflation, shows just why most people in Spain are, well, less than happy (and Spain is damn lucky there is no subset of the Misery index for just those aged 25 and under as we would certainly need a bigger chart). As the chart below shows, the Spanish "misery" is now the greatest in the world, at some 30%, and is worse than South Africa, Greece, Venezuela, Argentina and Egypt.(Via: ZerHedge).

....and yet, after the punishment and destruction of the wellbeing of the people of almost a whole continent, the Brussels nomenklatura is still forcing the idea the Euro will create growth and wealth.
