But the point is that these governments are attempting to take the easy way out and shift al the burden of crisis resolution on the ECB.
Now, since the ECB does exactly the same in reverse, that is, refuse to engage in appropriate monetary policy and advise governments against appropriate fiscal policy, maybe the problem is that Europe is caught between a bad Central Bank and a bad fiscal authority (the combination of the 17 Eurozone treasuries).
