Why the Euro Is Doomed in 4 StepsWe’re going to need a bigger acronym.In the beginning, it was just the “Greek debt crisis”. Then markets realized Portugal, Ireland, Italy, and Spain were in bad shape too, and the PIIGS (or GIIPS) were born. But now Cyprus and Slovenia have run into trouble as well, giving us the … SIC(K) PIGS? At this rate, we’re going to have to buy a vowel soon, assuming Estonia doesn’t end up needing a bailout.The euro crisis is entering its fourth year, and, sorry world, this won’t be its last. Now, its long periods of boredom have gotten a bit longer, and its moments of sheer financial terror a bit less terrifying ever since the European Central Bank (ECB) promised to do “whatever it takes” to save the common currency. But, as Cyprus and Slovenia show, the battle for the euro isn’t over yet. Not even close.Full Story: The Atlantic
“We believe the internet is still failing artists like Indian Wells. It hasn’t yet radically changed the process they go through to go on tour. The industry is essentially the same as it has been since 1990 (with phone calls between agents and promoters being replaced by email). That is why I’m so excited that we are using Detour to bring Indian Wells to London, for his first ever show outside of Italy. Via the community on Detour we raised 23 pledges to buy tickets – 23 people who stepped up and said ‘if you come, I’m in’, which is enough for us and our promoter partner to confirm a show, and bring him to London to the Shacklewell Arms. The show is at a weekend because it has to be around his day job in Italy. Tickets will go onsale 2pm Friday at https://detour-ldn.songkick.com/events.”
This is the future, can’t wait to see it with my eyes.
