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

The analogy is striking. Untold mayhem and suffering unleashed with cascades of "unforeseeable consequences" (mostly foreseeable), because of a mistaken belief which didn't stand up to serious scrutiny : the existence of WMD.

"Growth through austerity", on the other hand, seems to be much more tenacious as a belief : it only took a few months to deflate the WMD myth, but the ECB are laying waste to one country after another, without comprehending the visible disproof of their doctrine.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
