From Silver Doctors.

As always, click on the photo for the entire piece most of which I plagiarized like crazy for this post anyway.

Just trying to be honest about it.


A massive Euro sculpture was dismantled and removed from the Frankfurt International Airport in Germany Thursday.  

The sculpture is an exact copy of the one standing in front of the European Central Bank (ECB) in downtown Frankfurt and was made after a design by German artist Ottmar Hoerl.  

The 15m high blue and yellow sculpture stood in front of the terminal for 11 years. 

The official explanation is ‘the plastic parts are getting weak and the terminal needed the space‘.

Does € sculpture’s removal from the Frankfurt Airport indicate Germany is preparing for a surprise return to the Deutsche Mark?

I'm thinkin' ..... yyyup!

German workers dismantle a Euro sculpture in front of a terminal at the Frankfurt International Airport yesterday.

European budget deficits

Speigel Online offers a very informative and entertaining piece entitled,

The Hollow Euro

Specter of Inflation Haunts Europe

It's a little long, but pretty easy to read.


Click on any chart to link to the site.




P.S. American taxpayers contribute about $50 billion by way of a 17-20% partnership in the $250 Billion from the IMF. 





I'm searching high and low for a similar treatment of deficits within the states.

Most notably California, New York, Illinois et. al.

Preferably with lots of pretty colors, graphics, etc.

You know what I like. 

If you see something, let me know.
