From a discussion of the Dutch political system being in the pocket of Big Oil to warning that German policy stipulations and the Euro itself could “potentially destroy the European Union,” amid rebellion, George Soros has drastically reduced all Euro-related exposure from his portfolio – only a few weeks after his cautious optimism that Europe is ‘revived’ in Davos. As Open Europe blog [2] notes, Soros fears that “there is a real danger that the [Euro] solution to the financial problem creates a really profound political problem.” The interview below with Dutch TV shows Soros grave concerns that the Southern nations are “being pushed unwittingly… into a long lasting depression,” as Germany’s austerity program is “counter-productive – cannot actually succeed.” Just as we recently noted the similarities between the European Union and the Soviet Union, so Soros believes the ‘Euro’ itself is “bound to break up the European Union.” It may take generations, he notes, as a terrible tragedy of “lost political freedom and economic prosperity.”

From Davos – two weeks ago…optimism that the banking system had been revived but even then he was concerned…

 …the european banking system, the interbank market, has revived so there’s a general sense of let’s say almost euphoria that the crisis is over. I think that is somewhat premature. because the fundamental internal inconsistencies in the dis-tim have not been addressed, and actually, therefore, you face political dangers.

The Euro is transforming the European Union into something very different from the original conception which was a voluntary association of equal states, and instead of that, the financial created a two-class system where the euro, the creditors and debtors and the creditors are in charge. The political situation I think is going to get worse.
