Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, Spain et al mismanaged their private sector solvency just as badly as Greece allegedly mismanaged its public sector. A mismanagement I still don't see that much evidence of, to be honest. Barring retaliatory wage suppression, which is the ultimate in irresponsible short-term begger-thy-neighbour policy, they were really in a pick-your-poison type of scenario between a run on their public bonds or a run on their private banks. That Greece picked the former rather than the latter does not make them any more or less virtuous.
