    It would be nice if someone could start a discussion about the global financial crisis. Like many people, I am completely mystified about it – for example, why can’t banks simply seize Greek assets if Greek defaults, isn’t that what they do to companies that default and people who default? The Sky News reporter a couple of nights ago commented that no-one at Davos seemed to know what has caused the crisis, and there are competing views about how to resolve it – including the view that austerity measures actually make it worse rather than better. It would be nice if someone with some sort of knowledge could start a discussion on this.

    Another interesting discussion might be – should we join the Euro? It’s astonishing how the anti-Europeans seem to dominate any debvate by simply saying that it’s unthinkable – but why would this be so? There are likely to be many benefits, even with the current problems. For one thing, we would get to particpate in making the rules that others would follow, as well as be better able to prevent rules from being developed that damage us. Maybe some brave soul with a bit of knowledge in the area (unlike me!) could start a debate?
