Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Greece should not get its budget "back on track" to a 1930s style depression.

Balanced budgets are bad. Why is this so hard to grasp? Governments need to run deficits - usually quite substantial ones - to ensure full employment and macroeconomic stability. Any deal that does not allow European states to run any deficit required to defend full employment is a totally unacceptable deal and should be rejected and repudiated.
