Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The only reason I am absolutely certain that these cretins are not deliberately trying to fuck things up is the fact that they have fucked things up so hugely.

If these morons had actually set out to fuck up the eurozone, the crisis have been solved by now.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman

This is what EPP government looks like... They can put on a mighty show of pan-European force at party conventions but they cannot govern to save their lives.

Sadly, they may even thrive politically in the nationalistic chaos that's likely to ensue.

tens of millions of people stand to see their lives ruined because the bureaucrats at the ECB don't understand introductory economics -- Dean Baker
