Stratfor: Dexia Bank's Collapse and the European Financial Crisis

October 6th, 2011
in econ_news

EconintersectStratfor, a global intelligence provider - has produced another video on the growing Euro crisis.  Econintersect is republishing this video to show that the crisis in Europe is multilayered - with structural, fiscal and monetary issues.

The major Euro solutions discussed and implemented to date:

  • target fiscal austerity to bring budgets under control which have the short term effect of reducing revenues to the respective governments worsening the budget shortfall requiring additional tightening which cause additional budget shortfalls;
  • provide alternative funding sources (access to cheap financing including various lending schemes including a USA style TALF).

Stratfor's analysis is more nuts and bolts - and particularly focuses on the core elements which created (and propagate) this crisis.  Putting the collapse of Dexia Bank in context - it appears the PIIGS could soon be the BPIIGS.
