Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ten percent deficits in a serious business depression are not a bug, they're a feature. It's called "countercyclical fiscal policy." Look it up.

The ECB should be printing money on demand to support that, not demanding that the member states fund their countercyclical policy in the money markets.
