Portuguese Economic Slump Caused by the Large Capital Inflows that Came with the Euro

Portuguese Economic Slump Caused by the Large Capital Inflows that Came with the Euro | money money money | Scoop.it

Over the past 12 years, Portugal has been in a severe economic slump—growing less than the U.S. during the Great Depression and Japan during the Lost Decade—and that slump was mainly caused by the country’s inability to efficiently allocate the foreign capital inflows it received after joining the Eurozone, according to a new paper presented today at the Spring 2013 Conference on the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity (BPEA). Portugal was one of the first countries to join the Euro, in 1999.

Does the World Need a Bitcoin ETF? - Morningstar.com

Does the World Need a Bitcoin ETF? - Morningstar.com | money money money | Scoop.it
Earlier this week, Math-Based Asset Services LLC submitted paperwork to the SEC seeking permission to create a bitcoin exchange-traded fund, perhaps setting the record for one of the most outlandish ETF filings to date. The proposed fund would hold bitcoins in a trust structure similar to those used by gold ETFs, and it would protect its assets using a proprietary security system. The fund is being proposed by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, who are best known for their multiple lawsuits against Facebook(FB). Notably, the filing has the support of Kathleen Moriarty of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP; she was involved in the creation of early physical commodity ETFs. Although the bitcoin is an interesting concept, the asset is riddled with risks that prevent it from having any investment merit in its current state.

If you drew a Venn diagram of anarchists, strippers, and identical twins, one of the few points of intersection would be the digital currency Bitcoin. Famous for not being the face of Facebook, the Winklevoss twinsappear to be intent on divesting the currency from its countercultural past and transforming it into a new asset class for investors. This week the Winklevii, as the twins are collectively known, filed proposals with US regulators for a fund that would bring "Bitcoin to Main Street" by making speculation in the currency easier.

Euroscepticism is rooted in a broader authoritarian worldview that ... | money money money | Scoop.it

Since the ratification of the Maastricht Treaty two decades ago, proponents of European integration have faced a dilemma of sorts. Increasingly, public support is necessary for further integration as European issues become more salient in national politics and as member-state governments more frequently call referendums on European questions. At the same time, public support for the European Union (EU) has declined, making it more difficult for European elites to convince their electorates to support further integration.

Sepp Hasslberger's comment, July 3, 2013 5:01 PM
That integration is going in the wrong direction. If they'd ask the people how to integrate and did what we want, there'd be little problem. But as it is, the construct is getting very wobbly.
