It is all Greek to me (and you too)...is this our future?

A glorious civilization, now in ruins...
The Way the Greeks Live Now, by Russell Shorto.  Life goes on in Greece, but not as good as it was.  It shows (again) that Robert Heinlein was right about TANSTAAFL:  "There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch."  Eventually we all will pay.  


Russell Shorto's: Island at the Center of the World  This is a great book about the history of the Dutch colonies in North America (now New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) and I strongly recommend it.  Our Dutch predecessors focused on libertarian business and economics in their colonies and it was there influence that became the dominate one in the United States.  Well at least for a while.
