Two articles in the Guardian (UK, formerly the Manchester Guardian and a workingman’s paper, printed on thin white paper with long articles, copies of which made it as far as NY and which may have had some influence on my intellectual outlook) the last two days relevant to my pieces:

First, Costas Lapavistas on the European economic prognosis: “Germany’s austerity plans will beggar Europe, Berlin’s mantra about spending cuts in the eurozone is bringing unemployment and spreading hopelessness across Europe.”
