Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't understand the politics of this thing.

The member countries of the ESM will still give 10 billion, right? And the special tax will bring the needed sum down from about 15 billion to about 10 billion. That would reduce the german share from ca. 4.5 billion to ca. 3 billion.

And that would change what exactly in political terms?
