Plato's Allegory of the EURO. What's an allegory you ask? It's the representation of abstract ideas or principles by characters, figures, or events in narrative, dramatic, or pictorial form. So deep thinker Banzai7 came up with this amazing visual to help explain the Euro crisis with a bit of assistance from Plato. Not Play-doh, Plato. The light of the EURO fire illumates the debt spectacle and it's shadow is the focus instead of the real problem. Pretty much sums it up. Class dismissed.
