The Fall of Europe – Nigel Farage

As you all know, we love a bit of Nigel Farage here at Bogpaper Towers, he appeared on the wonderful Capital Account a few days ago and so we just had to share it with you. Enjoy!

    What I find slightly confusing about the current economic and political situation, and I may be perceiving it wrongly, is the following.
    It looks to me that the political “right” is focussed upon things like fiat currencies and current government economic policy, leading to some sort of either hyperinflationary collapse of the currency, or disruptive establishment of a new pseudo “gold standard”.
    It looks to me that the political “left”, particularly the “hard left”, see the current situation as just a failure of capitalism and so are planning how to use any serious economic disruption to increase their influence and the size of governments.
    What I struggle to find, is anything from the “right” that seems to deal with the opportunity that would be presented from our governments being forced into a situation where they have to restructure their national economies, public sectors and national infrastructure.
    This video from Nigel Farage, it seems to me fits in the first category, someone on the political “right” describing, effectively, the collapse of the Eurozone, the Community Method and the European Social Model.
