Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

But I don't want central banks to recommend structural adjustment programmes and fiscal austerity. That's none of their business. They're there to kill insolvent banks and print money for the government. That's all I want them to do. The fact that the ECB is the entity with the greatest influence on federal-level EU macroeconomic planning is a disgrace and a perversion of the proper way to run an industrial state.

The IMF is a different sort of story - they should be doing macro, and they should be doing it right. (But they should never have been involved in an internal €-zone crisis in the first place...)
