EU ( means I in Portuguese )

New changes on the way, as new thinkers get inpowered. (lets take Greek example)
What is the meaning of such changes? what will this bring to people?
I really don't have a formed opinion about Syriza (far left wing greek party); for what
i've seen in the news, i'm not very keen on someone that promises to break international
One could question if present economy models are society/state sustainable,
or deeper, if markets should control much of societies (this is just a personal conviction) .... but...
couldn't there be some new good ideas to make persons independent of such exploiters?

My true billion dollar question would be "what would be a credible alternative, that could develop economy without jeopardizing people's wishes and requirements?" - well, this would demand at least an honest answer.

I believe that this will have repercussions on EU countries, some early followers will have their chance to call themselves to the process where some populism will prevail, nevertheless of the major buzzwords they have.
Austerity has many faces.... if by one side there are public/private overweight on spending, over credit, by the other controlling institutions, markets, banks and other .... let this happen and it was under the legal umbrella. This promiscuous relation between give and take should be balanced ....
Well mentalities have to change....current rules are not enough and sin for being arrested by old fashioned models.
I vote favourably for economic development to achieve peoples wishes (general growth, better wages, employment, education, healthcare, protection to unprotected elderly, children and disabled), but no citizen should be arrested for its supposed good demands.
Watching the overall scene and  north european countries behaviour.... more then ever EU will have the Portuguese meaning of "I", the selfish optic side of the europeans.... which in fact is the opposite of what the European project should be..... as i've said before true leaders wanted.....badly!

it seems that a new year began ... there are some uncertainties on the way
such as oil and currencies balance, critic politic and diplomatic affairs and decisions are on schedule. USA has become independent from middle east oil, and is now exporting, also unfortunately to europe.... they still can't figure a way to safely drive EU... a bunch of countries that can't stick together as a sole institution/ nation.... will never have the strength to set their international agenda.... neither the least will take too much time and money.

So much more standardized ways of thinking are expected ....... hope this doesn't affect the innovators and entrepreneurs!

WELCOME 2015 - forecast for 2015 (see also 2014)
1st people are more aware-- social networks and new media support are spreaded ... more than ever.... spread of knowledge or stupidity.

2nd these same people for themselves realise more that 
can't rely and be so states/ government dependents -- new movements that can be citizens genuine representatives are on the way and be shaped by left and right wingers (.....?)

3rd New players are creating their agenda and with it societies will have to adapt to it, for instance "new" foreign languages teaching - my 14 year old niece asked my opinion if she should select mandarin or german as 2nd language... so this is a fact.

4th New tech advances in hardware (nanotech advances) and augmented reality will bring new breakthrough opportunities in how people relate with machines  and with each other. Increasing tailored made productive systems.
--- sure... we can 3d print almost everything ... thats an huge advance in product development.

5th There are also some uncertainties in what consumption concerns. --- Can't figure if BRICS can sustain world economic grow.... corruption undermine the path (for all present societies) and can easily change BRICS to brics

all in all .....i'm still pessimist .... bah..... to me :P
