Did anybody ever before endorse the creation of a massive market in illusory commodities which may be created or destroyed by fiat in some court which does not hold power in the land where those who want to trade reside? Can't they see how downright crazy it is? Even after the collapse of Lehman's, can't they see? It makes dutch tulip bulb traders look completely sane in comparison. At least you could plant them after you went bust.
Considering that the EU is based on an illusion, it is sort of appropriate ... an illusion in pursuit of an illusion.
