There are cases in which competition leads us to suicide, while collaboration makes everybody richer. This is true for individuals and for nations.
I do not have the solution for the Europeans. But there is no reason why we should not be concerned about Europe.
My heart feels for all the Europeans that are out of work and suffering the stress of big government cuts when they are more harming ( being unemployed ! )
My best wishes for Europe, specially the Southern Europeans. I do not blame prime ministers, government officials or nations. I hope for Euro Recovery.
And yes, I want the Euro to survive as an important currency with high value, and I wish that the European Union becomes stronger and stronger and does not dissolve.
The Western Hemisphere : let's hope that things evolve for the better and that the American Economy improves in all matters including Employment and New Jobs.
Perhaps it is possible to become more conciliatory and less aggressive, so that solutions can be found. Otherwise the elections of November 2012 will make the decision.
