So How is That Amero Thing Working Out?
One of the more popular post-9/11 conspiracy theories promoted by the Alex Jones crowd is that the global elites are engineering a financial meltdown so they can impose a "North American Union" and "Amero" on the United States. So I was amused to read this article in the International Herald Tribune this morning.
Economic crisis threatens the idea of one Europe
The leaders of the European Union gathered Sunday in Brussels for an emergency summit meeting designed to tamp down the centrifugal forces unleashed by the global economic crisis that threaten to spin the bloc - and its single currency - apart.
In a statement afterward, the leaders tried to reassure their publics, promising to hold to the single market, promote growth and reject protectionism.
A call from Hungary for a large bailout for newer, eastern members of the union was rejected by Germany, the richest EU nation, and received little support from other countries.
