‘Got to save the Banks!’- ‘Blame it on those lazy Greeks! – Berlin funny fotos – Pull up those PIIGS poster in Berlin

October 6th, 2011
Pull up those PIGS!
Pull up those PIGS!

Blog reader Theo sent in this picture on the Auguststraße in Berlin.

It is of a very large poster against the bank-bailout which are presently being planned in the EU and satirizing the present state of affairs – Merkel and Sarkozy pulling the strings.

These so-called PIIGS countries are the scapegoat, or have become the sacrificial lamb in the recent international financial crisis. This ‘crisis’ has in fact been  caused by the profligacy of the governments and  banks in various countries like Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Italy – who if one believes the rhetoric have been enjoying a perfectly wonderful time on borrowed money.

However this huge poster shows the other and more logical view – namely that large banks in these countries and other lender countries like Germany + France in fact benefited from this mis-management of public funds big-time and now want the ordinary citizens of these countries and the rest of the EU to pay for their financial mis-management and incompetence.

It is hanging outside the ‘daadgalerie’ – http://www.daadgalerie.de/

 

This is all very similar in sentiment to the anti-Wall Street demonstrations in North America, both the US and Canada.http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/americas/anti-wall-street-protests-take-off-thanks-to-a-canadian-idea/article2191364/

    Yes the banks of all these countries are completely out to lunch expecting the local taxpayers to cough up the cash for their idiocy.

    Public gains become private profit & Private losses become public losses – has been the way in the past but is wrong and good for people to try and change it.

    Capitalism is pretty flawed and weak system. ….a giant with feet of clay!!!

  3. […] the Germans especially, who have made Greece the scapegoat for the larger crisis and slandered all Greeks as lazy tax-evading scroungers, when German industry has thrived on its peripheral markets and German companies have paid billions […]

    To Maria Margaronis-
    The above article does in fact point this out –

    “However this huge poster shows the other and more logical view – namely that large banks in these countries and other lender countries like Germany + France in fact benefited from this mis-management of public funds big-time and now want the ordinary citizens of these countries and the rest of the EU to pay for their financial mis-management and incompetence.”
