Poverty is returning to Europe

Unilever sees ‘return to poverty’ in Europe[*1] from the UK’s Telegraph newspaper:

“Poverty is returning to Europe,” Jan Zijderveld, the head of Unilever’s European business told the Financial Times Deutschland in an interview.

“If a consumer in Spain only spends €17 when they go shopping, then I’m not going to be able to sell them washing powder for half of their budget.”

The inevitable result of the welfare-state form of democracy as practiced in Europe, and as advocated by the Democratic Party of the United States, is poverty for the masses and outrageous wealth (harvested from those masses) for the elites.


(And yeah, plenty of Republicans of the Establishment variety want to hop on the elite-harvester gravy train, too. This is precisely what the Tea Party types want to stop and reverse.)

Remember that the next time a reporter from the Media-Democrat Complex sneers at the Tea Party.
