Forum Post: How to solve the euro crisis

Every person in the world should contribute one euro. This will be enough to cover the debts of Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland.

But is the world prepared to enforce solidariety? I think today's "worldwide solidarity" only extends to sharing youtube videos, not sacrifices vis à vis other people. "I just care for my house, no matter if my neighbour house is catching fire"

I suppose that would be difficult to organize, and you know all that you collect will be going to banks!

Couldn't we ask the banks to take a haircut, maybe 50% off? couldn't we let the European countries carry a portion of the remaining debt without our contribution. If so then we are talking about 25 cent from everyone. Or maybe 1 euro from each European.

I don't know. I suppose it would never happen anyway.

The problem with the Euro isnt a lack of funds, its corruption, just like every other currency right now.

Donating more money to the problem without addressing the causes is not going to solve anything, its just delaying the inevitable.

the inevitable?

The inevtable has happened already..

See people in the street with no money to pay their rent/family food at the end of the month and do nothing will make things even worse. To say "the system does't work, so hell with it" and not put alternatives will not make things better.

Dude, no one said do nothing. Im saying that simply throwing more money at the problem is delaying the inevitable. Real reforms need to happen to fix it.
