The European Union – Is the economic euphoria justified?While the UK voted to exit the EU, Eurosceptic and populist voices are getting stronger. Whilst the threat of the unsolved refugee crisis from the East is being downplayed (in the midst of echoes of daily provocations from a bullying Turkey), terror attacks in Europe are on the rise.

As the Union has not yet convinced that the Eurozone can efficiently function without threatening the EU’s own existence, totalitarian and undemocratic austerity policies do not only suffocate the EU’s economic growth but tear the European society apart, nurturing discord instead of solidarity, and disintegration. As the more-integration-no-matter-what-the-consequences-doctrine continues, the European Union seems to only act after an agreement to solve a conflict or after a crisis has already been adopted by the conflicting parties. All of these and more while the President of the European Commission announces that the Union is on the right path. But is it?

Did you know?

that Confucius about 2,500 years ago argued that the government should not compete for profit with the people, as it would only result to the exploitation of the population?

that Pytheas has presence in 41 countries?

that every year, Americans buy more than 100 million cell phones, yet fewer than 20% of old cell phones are recycled and that recycling just a million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to removing 1,368 cars off the road for a full year?

that the Boeotian Hesiod about 3000 years ago theorized on the entrepreneurship typical of the market (an early laissez-faire), identifying the effects of government debasement of the coinage, which causes a decrease in its purchasing power (think Adam Smith, Keynes and post Keynes), arguing about the importance of competition and the importance of justice and the law in order to foster order and harmony in society?

that Pytheas through its Soil Water + Life Solutions is probably the only entity world wide that can provide a-no-chimney-no-landfill-solution for the treatment of municipal solid and liquid waste?

that Pytheas the ancient Greek explorer, mathematician, astronomer and navigator must have travelled to the American continent at the time of Alexander the Great?

that the revenue that is generated from gambling is more than the revenue derived from movies, cruse ships, recorded music, theme parks and spectator sports combined?

that recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity; this is enough energy to power the average North American home for 5 months?

that of all the restaurants that are opened, 90% of them fail in the first year and of the remaining ones that survive, 90% of those fail in the second year?
