Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My point is that the pensions problem is, maybe, maybe, a long term problem, whereas the current debt binge is at best a medium term problem with very immediate consequences. So one should focus first on the larger and more urgent problem.

That does not mean ignoring the long term problem, but its puts it in perspective. and, as far as I am concerned, it is not really a problem.
