Germany has already sunk about $180billion into shoring up the single currency - but it will need to pay the same every year from here to eternity to keep the weaker nations from going bust within the eurozone.

The upside of the revolutions happening in the Middle East - is realising that it's imperative that the major economies look at weaning themselves off oil and gas.

Leaders of major economies have long paid lip service to the need to switch from fossil fuels. Perhaps now the Arab revolutions have brought them face to face with the perils of oil addiction - now we will finally see some action!
If Saudi Arabia were to fail - there would be an earthquake across the world economy. Saudi Arabia is an economy that oils the wheels of the rest of the world
After bankers crashed the economy in 1929, some committed suicide...after they crashed the economy in 2008 they demanded even bigger bonuses!
