Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

My proposed solution to the European sovereign crisis
It is as simple as this. What needs to happen is the sending of a letter:
We promise to let go of the Second World War, if you promise to move on from the Weimar hyperinflation. Deal? Thanks.
It really is as simple as that; read the Paul Krugman blog and see that I'm right about a) the essentially monetary nature of the problem and b) the essentially historical-psychological nature of its cause. All of Europe's monetary problems can actually be solved by simply growing up and recognising that sixty years on, we no longer really have the nineteen thirties to blame for our problems.
One day we will also no longer have the 1960s to blame, but I'll be long in the groun before then.
