Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Easy. As a social democrat Asmussen gets his marching orders out of the Willy Brandt-Haus.


I think Asmussen is because of his long career inside the finance ministry more used to public diplomacy and the necessity of compromise. He is also used to support his boss in public, in this case Draghi.

Weidmann is more a product of the absolute and irresponsible Bundesbank culture.

Not much of an explanation but the best I can muster.
