Welcome to Acting Man's Forum!
It has come to our attention that the Voy Forum, that has inter alia provided a space where the so -called 'Kitco refugees' could congregate and exchange their views, has run into grave problems. Either the forum is not loading at all, or if it does load, it has become impossible for users to log in.
You will find access to post after free registration, the forum button is located in the upper menu bar … or .
We have therefore decided to provide an alternative for this forum on the Acting Man site (other readers of our site are of course more than welcome to use it as well). This can either become a permanent home for the 'refugees' if they so wish, or a temporary one they can use in times of need (such as right now).
Depending on whether it catches on, we may at a later stage upgrade the forum page. Please be aware that if several links to outside sources are posted at once, the posts sometimes need to await approval (this is also to guard against spam). As a workaround, it may therefore sometimes be better to not post too many links at once in a single message.
Euro Hysteria At A Fever Pitch
Monday was so chock-full with at times bewildering news items that one hardly knows where to begin. We decided therefore to focus on what one might call a case of official hysterics.

… in a 2:45 long video
Clarke and Dawes, in inimitable fashion, make the debt crisis accessible to everyone, by explaining exactly what the problem is. A friend sent us this video earlier today, and we felt we had to help spreading it, since it really hits the nail on the head. There's nothing that says we can't laugh while the ship sinks – it's better than pulling out one's hair (or what's left of it, depending).
