Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Display:
You're going to have countries going further into recession, making it harder for them to service their debt, that will be seen and responded to as a currency crisis.

So you're saying another three iterations of Teh Stupid: One to realise that it's a currency crisis (European Tribune: Get your news two years early), but deal with it by the IMF playbook. Another one to realise that maybe it's time to dust off the proper policy response (John Maynard Keynes: Get your policy response eighty years early). And a third one to actually get their act together and convince even the dumbest Bild Zeitung reading meatbrain that Keynes was right all along.

What great fun. Maybe I should move to Germany.
