Euro Crisis Personified

Posted on Updated on

Obviously this blog has been on hiatus for awhile (due to comprehensive exams and dissertation proposal work), I hope to resume in the summer.

In the meantime, here is an excellent map sent to me by my friend David that actually personifies the current euro crisis — France is represented by an aging (but staggering) population while Spain is a carefree lush. I think my favorite is the clean cut Finland, who seems to be laughing at its southern neighbors.
