At the risk of sounding like a broken record, if you do not remove the threat of punitive policy rates against defaulting €-zone economies, you will have a better than even chance of not having a European Union to implement fiscal policy in by this time next decade.

Meanwhile, Trichet proposes an EU finance minister without a budget whose only role would be to IMF member states. Some European construction, that.

Incidentally, I think we should start calling this "ECB riots" and "to ECB a country". Smearing the IMF is getting old.
