Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

Germany is the largest Euro economy, the one with the largest trade surplus, and the one the market takes as benchmark. This makes it the single most powerful country and the one with the largest responsibility for success/failure of European economic policies.

In this context:

  1. the constant flip-flopping on the Greek situation arguably made matters worse
  2. we now have credible claims of spreading market-sensitive misinformation


By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
