If Greece goes?: The impact of a Greek default on Europe and the world economy

Image
The Financial Times, the global business newspaper, has led the field with its coverage of the eurozone crisis and Greece's political and financial chaos. As the chances of a Greek exit from the eurozone grow, the FT's specialist correspondents and authoritative columnists dissect the potentially devastating consequences for businesses and governments across Europe. Could a 'Grexit' spell the unravelling of the European Union? Should the world economy take cover? What would the impact be on Greece itself? Based on a series of articles published online and in print in May 2012, the Financial Times' first ebook includes a foreword by Lionel Barber, the FT editor, an updated introduction to possible scenarios in the months ahead and a new chapter on the options for Germany, Europe's paymaster. Contributors include award-winning commentators Martin Wolf, Wolfgang Münchau and Gillian Tett, and foreign correspondents Peter Spiegel and Quentin Peel.

What IF ?

Image
What IF ? is a book that describes several different types of scenarios and solutions that an individual, or family, can do to protect themselves in the event that "everything comes undone". The world as we know it today, could change overnight. How do you protect your family, where would you go, what would you do if the power grid, in half of the United States, was completely wiped out in the blink of an eye ? Could you live for a year or two without going to the store to buy food and water ? Could you protect your property and family if a small angry mob were to attack your home? Particularly if they knew you had food and water and they hadn't eaten for a week ? Do you know how to protect your family in the event a nuclear bomb were to go off hundreds of miles from your home ? This book takes a hard look at several of these possibilities and explains what solutions are in your hands how to resolve them. How to barricade yourself safely into your home and discussions about several different types of weapons and what the pros and cons are to each.
Strategic information about growing and storing your own food supply. Different ways to collect and store water are discussed as well. This book is a must read for anyone that's remotely concerned about the government's ability to maintain and restore order in the event of any type of natural or man-made disaster. There are multiple levels of preparedness that all of us can take. The question is, what are you willing to prepare for ? What IF the unthinkable happens ?

I think my prepping reading started in 1973 with John and Sally Seymour's Self-Sufficiency. The rest has just been tweeking. :)

I have a Kindle and love it... (so easy to make the writing bigger -rather than look for my glasses).

A while back I might have jumped at one or two of these. Right now I'm rather more into historical novels.... 8)

I made a decision not to use DODGY TAX AVOIDERS because of their tax avoidance but I think I might just make use of their service for some freebies though.

Indeed. I recently added a note on my DODGY TAX AVOIDERS wish list asking my friends and family to browse the list and read the reviews by all means but to buy the book in their local independent book shop, not DODGY TAX AVOIDERS. I likened it to my policy of seeking out McDonalds when I need to use the toilet in town. Shit on them by all means but don't pay to eat their shit food..

I like it! We use Tesco's toilet sometimes for similar reasons. Sometimes I go to look at a price of something in Tesco, to pass the information back to a real shopkeeper. Just being in their store dilutes their takings per body by a tiny, minute amount. :lol: Every little helps.

For books, I like newsfromnowhere.co.uk because it's a not-for-profit women's collective and, even ordering via the web, you feel like you're dealing with human beings. Their prices are sometimes higher than DODGY TAX AVOIDERS's, so beware - but price may not always bubble to the top of your criteria.

I like Oobers sentiment very much.

Regarding price at DODGY TAX AVOIDERS, we have to factor in the extra tax that we are paying on something else every time we buy from DODGY TAX AVOIDERS because they, in effect, by not paying tax receive a subsidy from the tax payer on all their sales. Look on the extra that you pay someone else as the tax that would have to be levied by DODGY TAX AVOIDERS if their made their proper contribution to the society that they now sponge off.

You could say that DODGY TAX AVOIDERS are in the same situation as someone who elects to take the dole rather than work for a living. It's not illegal but it's not a particularly moral thing to do either. DODGY TAX AVOIDERS "avoiding" tax isn't illegal but ...
