What Happens Next (In Europe)?
the odds of another crisis are higher than a rally to fresh records. [...]
“The 2009-2015 rally originated from two main drivers: a massive stimulus, and credit expansion in China,” said Goette, who’s a partner at his firm in Zug, Switzerland and helps oversee 1 billion Swiss francs ($1 billion).

“European earnings have not followed suit so far. Skepticism regarding central-bank operations has started to emerge.”

George Osborne: A profile of the man behind the Budget - BBC Newsnight
// 70% of UK economy growth (GDP), 2015, was consumption. // and trade deficit/current account deficit for 2015, biggest ever on record ---- The UK's current account deficit widened to a record high in the final quarter of last year.
The deficit in the three months to December was £32.7bn, the equivalent of 7% of GDP, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
For all of 2015, it came to £96.2bn or 5.2% of GDP. Both figures were the highest since records began in 1948.
A current account deficit means the value of imports of goods, services and investment income exceeds exports.[...] "An obvious potential trigger for the markets losing confidence in the UK economy could be a vote to leave the EU in the 23 June referendum."

Cascadia subduction zone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cascadia subduction zone (also referred to as the Cascadia fault) // newyorker.com/magazine/2015/07/20/the-really-big-one // The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system. When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive. Surface waves are slower, lower-frequency waves that move the ground both up and down and side to side: the shaking, starting in earnest. [...] seventy-five per cent of all structures in the state are not designed to withstand a major Cascadia quake. FEMA calculates that, across the region, something on the order of a million buildings—more than three thousand of them schools—will collapse or be compromised in the earthquake. [...] To see the full scale of the devastation when that tsunami recedes, you would need to be in the international space station.

Erdbeben-Serie in Los Angeles: Kalifornien fürchtet "The Big One" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Chile had 2 big ones just recently - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Chile_earthquake + http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2014/04/recent_earthquakes_in_chile_ca.html + The answer is a resounding no, according to George Priest, a geologist with the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, and numerous other Oregon and Washington scientists. Increases or decreases in earthquake activity are all part of normal fluctuations, they said. "This was not an unusual event," Priest said. "We have lots of 4s and magnitude 4.5s in the region, but maybe not there at that spot (in Sherwood). There is no evidence that these earthquakes mean anything for the future."

Umfrage im Mittelstand: Deutsche Unternehmer schreiben Euro-Zone ab - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Unternehmer als Wachstumskritiker Deutschlands Mittelständler zeigen sich in der Umfrage sogar als Wachstumskritiker. 88 Prozent unterschrieben die Aussage, die deutsche Volkswirtschaft müsse sich auf Grenzen des Wachstums einstellen. Nach Ansicht der Commerzbank-Analystin Ulrike Rondorf spiegelt sich darin auch die derzeitige Kapitalismusdebatte. "Ich denke, dass diese Einschätzung der Unternehmer der breiten Öffentlichkeit entspricht, die ein Streben nach höherem Wachstum und Gewinnen ablehnt." > but without growth, you can't serve existing debt burden.
