Syriza validated my intuition on BBC radio 4 today: there is a "the whole world is watching" vibe going on for sure. Italy and France have become positively alarmed. And there was a very fierce discussion about it all on NPR today: the opinionators were center left and left. No Thatcherites in evidence at all. Thatcherite callers got short shrift. Even the Today show on Radio 4 have started weirding out about it. The non-austerity academic economics view, fully politicized, is now being given air time without ridicule.'
This is far from over.
