Interconnecting crises

The time we are living in is, to put it mildly, disturbing. Not only should we act on climate change, there is an on-going war in many parts of the Middle East, Chinese real estate markets may implode and closer to home, we have the mismanagement of the Eurocrisis and the Ukraine crisis.

Although the Finnish foreign minister apparently concluded that the Finnish parliamiant is nearly unanimously convinced who is responsible for the Ukraine crisis, there are many who are not so sure. The situation is nonetheless so complicated, that I do not want to get into discussion about who is to blame, but I would like to post Mathew D. Rose’s text on the connection between the Ukraine Crisis and the Eurocrisis. He makes very valid points, which sadly also mean that in neither case a solution is likely to emerge any time soon.
