1. Huffington Post calls for the quite revolution its a good starting point - change your banks and brokers actually you can manage your money yourself with ETF's and common sense if you do not give to many credit to mainstream media news.
2. I hinted a few times to the time bombs within the EU and that the Euro rise was not supported by any fundamentals - actually the rise of the Euro was a US government move to gather earnings momentum for the SPX 500 companies who made more than 50% from oversees profits mostly due to currency effects. The problem now is that the heavy burden of 2.5 tril of bond issues thereby 2 tril is net new borrowing can not be accomplished with a sinking Dollar. To prepare for another scam they let the Dollar float higher to generate demand - though the second step of this operation might be to let stock markets drop hence that will ultimately trigger save heaven buying.
