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

Jerome a Paris comment on 31 January 2007:

The problem is that there are now too many euroskepitcal countries (and the leaders of France and Germany themselves are less euro-enthusiastic) to get the second leg working. Or it's just that the euro was such a great economic reform that it has brought no crisis that would really bring about the need for political integration. Compared to the monetary crises and devaluation traumas of the 80s, the current spats on budget deficits are very mild.
Be careful what you wish for...

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
