I was fascinated to hear, from a very well connected and educated German with significant wealth, that the "only possible explanation" for Germany's shortsighted and extravagantly poor mismanagement of the euro crisis:

... is that Merkel is a Russian mole, a pawn of Putin, set on destroying the economy and eventually the social cohesion of Europe, leaving it under the control of energy rich Russia.

This guy was not kidding, as he is moving all his considerable assets out of Europe -- mostly Germany -- as quickly as he can reasonably liquidate them, and is choosing between setting up residency in USA, Australia, Canada.

At first I thought it was just the furious musings of an imaginative mind but now I am haunted by his insistence that "no other theory can explain the facts before us."

I doubt it! But no question the damage being done now is enormous, first in capital flight but also in collapse of confidence in all institutions. What a disaster.
