Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The stability condition for a structural CA deficit country in a fixed-rate regime without a BanCor is that nominal growth must exceed nominal interest rates on the foreign debt. If the ECBuBa were pursuing a zero risk-free interest rate policy, this would be possible. But it isn't, so it isn't.

If you don't believe me, just derive the convergence criterion yourself.
