Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

 The debt brake is a imitation of the debt brake in Switzerland introduced in 2001, the concrete german rule a result of commission working from early 2007 to early 2009. So I think we are talking less about a reaction to the crisis and ore about a manifestation of a long term obsession of the german body politic with public debt.
