This was generally the way before the crash anyway.. Hence the whole "Western Europe" vs "Eastern Europe" vs "Club Med" thing..

Western Europe is among the most developed on the planet whereas Eastern Europe are still struggling with Capitalism after the fall of the USSR.. Club Med is hot and where there is heat, there is economic stagnation apparently.

Hmmm.. I don't know about that.. Wouldn't that mean we would have less money to pay our bills? Even though I know Danish people are almost the highest paid in the world..

Denmark I believe leads the world in being: the highest-paid, highest-taxed, most-happy, and most-secular, and now it seems least-behind-on-bills. Sounds like they did something right.
