How Spain Just Made Mario Draghi’s Nightmare Worse
Yesterday, ahead of the monthly update from the ECB, we posted “What Keeps Mario Draghi Up At Night, And Why The European Depression Has A Ways To Go” in which we showed that not only has M3 in Europe terminally broken apart from bank lending to the Euroarea private sector, but that lending to European banks was growing at the slowest annual pace on record. Today, the ECB showed that Draghi’s unpleasant dream is becoming a full-blown nightmare with M3 sliding from a 2.9% growth rate in May to just 2.3% in June, suggesting that whatever the ECB is (not) doing is not working and yet another stimulus round is imminent.

However, putting into question whether even such a stimulus would do anything, is the fact that actual private sector lending contracted even more, and in June declined from a previous record pace of -1.1% to a new record low of -1.6%. In other words, not only is Europe’s Keynesian debt trap getting bigger by the month, but the European monetary plumbing system is completely and perhaps permanently fractured.

Greece entered the world financial crisis in 2008 with less than 10 percent of the country’s labor force out of work. Today, more than a quarter of the population is left without jobs and with no apparent chance of getting one.

And, as RT’s Egor Piskunov reports, Greeks are now looking elsewhere for their future.

Worldwide Unemployment Crisis: There Are 93 Million Unemployed Workers In G20 Nations
Major industrialized nations all over the planet are no longer able to produce enough jobs for their people.  In many “wealthy nations” the unemployment rate has already risen well up into double digits.  Just consider the following numbers…
-The unemployment rate is above 25 percent in South Africa.
-The unemployment rate in France recently hit a 15 year high.
-The unemployment rate in Italy is up to 12.2 percent, which is the highest in 35 years.
-The unemployment rate in the eurozone as a whole is up to an all-time high of 12.2 percent.
-The unemployment rate in Poland is 13.2 percent.
-The unemployment rate in Ireland is now 13.6 percent.
-The unemployment rate in Portugal has rocketed up to 17.7 percent.
-The unemployment rate in Greece is currently sitting at 26.9 percentand it is being projected that it will soon hit 30 percent.
-The unemployment rate in Spain is even worse than in Greece.  The unemployment rate in Spain is a staggering 27.2 percent.
