As this issue of CME goes to press, the Western world is in financial chaos. European leaders are meeting day after day to try to hammer out a financial deal to save the Eurozone. At each 'deal' markets rally briefly - and then the gloom returns. The figures being bandied about are astronomical - in the billions of US dollars. At the same time that all this money is being thrown at an unsustainable social system in Europe (and the USA) the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria is in financial crisis. Donors are simply not paying - either scaling down their commitments or not releasing money that has been promised - because they are too wrapped up in trying to save their countries' economies.
