CORONAVIRUS and EUROBONDS: Will the EU collapse?

Written by Umberto Belluzzo

Last week the coronavirus situation became worse, especially in Europe, and I assume it is clear to anyone that we still have two more weeks of #stayathome. In Italy and Spain, after almost 4 weeks of lockdown, the number of deaths per day are drastic; in UK the Prime Minister got infected and in other places such as the US, Donald Trump has passed from talking about open and crowded churches in Easter to declaring that if the number of deaths remained under 100K, the government would have done a good job.

TEXTBOOKS

Textbooks, most of us had to deal with them. WAIT, what am I saying? ALL of us had to deal with them; and we are proud of our overpriced, loosely fact-checked stack of paper.

My family spends  450$ (400 EUR) on textbooks for me alone, every single year; that might sound like a hefty but necessary purchase, but add another child and that price goes up to almost 1 thousand dollars every year. I’m just in high school, college textbooks cost twice as much (with an average of 1,200 $ a year per student).. could a broke college student afford  such a expense?
