The dominant one: The crisis is caused by government deficits and must be solved by reducing government spending and raising taxes on the poor. Main problem is feckless poors and southerners.
IM's alternative: The crisis is caused by government deficits and must be solved by raising taxes on the rich.
Jake's & Mig's alternative: The crisis is caused by EMU rules limiting government deficits and must be solved institutional reform to allow deficit spending.
Please correct me if I am wrong when stating the positions, but if I am right paiting either side as collaborating with the right-wing narrative in one is unhelpful.
