As for the plight of the eurozone, this could have been designed by a Left-wing propagandist as a satire of how money-power works. A single currency is created. A single bank controls it. No democratic institution with any authority watches over it, and when the zone’s borrowings run into trouble, elected governments must submit to almost any indignity rather than let bankers get hurt. What about the workers? They must lose their jobs in Porto and Piraeus and Punchestown and Poggibonsi so that bankers in Frankfurt and bureaucrats in Brussels may sleep easily in their beds

You probably didn’t guess Charles Moore (well, unless you’ve already read this piece this morning).  Yes, this Charles Moore.  He’s in a funk about the Right (rightly so, IMO).  I’d hardly agree with all of it (well, it is still Charles Moore and not Naomi Klein), but it’s interesting and good to see someone who is prominent on the Right actually questioning what’s going on.
