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

In any case, you continue to not address the issue of why the periphery should accept depression conditions rather than the core accepting some inflation.

Investing German surpluses outside the Eurozone does nothing to address the intra-Eurozone imbalances, by the way.
