Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Furthermore prior to the start of the last crisis some countries - sweden, canada - had a surplus years in a row.

Sweden is running a surplus by means of a trade surplus, sustained by keeping wages from following productivity. It is one way to slowly race the working class to the bottom, but it can not be ran by many contestants at the same time as someone has to have a trade deficit for someone else to have a trade surplus.

A vote for PES is a vote for EPP! A vote for EPP is a vote for PES! Support the coalition, vote EPP-PES!
