And so was I reading my twitter feed early this morning when I saw a link to an interesting article at the WSJ.
The title was: Who is Europe’s Biggest Loser?
The header also sported a catchy line: “And the Oscar for the Hardest Hit From the Greek Bailout Goes to…”
At that stage it was impossible for me but to read the whole piece and within it’s first few lines I found this hidden gem: (…) “Hans is being robbed —not given any choice—to pay for carefree Stavros, and may soon be robbed to pay for José’s and Joãos” (…)
I enjoyed reading the piece and so I promptly tweeted the following: “WSJ: Hans is being robbed to pay for carefree Stavros, and may soon be robbed to pay for José’s and Joãos.”
And here is the response from José, our esteemed editor-in-chief… who within seconds e-mailed me the following one line:
“Hans has not only enjoyed countless summers in Greece and Spain all these years, but his company has grown exporting to these countries with great advantages thanks to the internal market and the euro, it has also bought competitors in the South of Europe and has become very profitable thanks to the EU!”
Isn’t that for a brilliant display of summarizing and didactic skills?
Gotta love the Internets and its skilled and knowledgeable inhabitants…
