Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Italy is not the country that wants to punish Greece to discourage the others.

In fact, I would argue that Italy is the country that is being discouraged.

I know Spain is very bad off with 26% unemployed, but Spain's finances are not so bad that it could not instantly rebound with proper policy.

Italy is a very different case. Half my family is Italian, I spent years living in Padova, and I am very worried.
