Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
amusing. Disappointing in the first case as well as whe is a pretty good one.

DSK would never have made that mistake but then, he's got other problems (and I'm not talking about his New York maid problems)...

Next year will be interesting indeed, suspect a lot of movement in advance of elections, as economists on left (well, our left) and right (borrowing heavily from Front de Gauche economists, this is probably woth a diary) both see the Euro for what it is, a hard shackle against growth, stablity and social equality around all of the EU save a couple of countries in the center (and I can only think of three or four...DE, NL, AT and LU).

If France detaches as well from the interested center of the Eurozone...well, then all things become possible.
