  • so this book & the author are getting what both the ‘son’and its father deserve. I cannot tell let alnone exaggerate what I felt during the adventure which is reading this book, other that pure astonishment, as if a dynomo was flipping into gear, the highest gear that is. we have a term for this feeling, yet another Greek term if I am not mistaken: Eureka! it was Archimedis yelling it, I Found It, via Yanis (and others).

    hence I have been promoting this book by sending mails to Members of our Dutch Parliament, people in the German government and Parliament, people working on rather high levels in the EU; only the blind can not see the scope of this marvel (as with Yanis’ Modest Proposal medning the Eurocrisis)

  • I only hope this one becomes a best seller. It surely is a must.

    Congratulation Yanis.

    When you return and if you find the time, let us know what US economists and academics think about your analysis and proposals. I think many of us here would find it most interesting.
