    Only when they try German style austerity will they recover. Germany doesn't want to bailout profligate Europe with the money they saved through austerity, which makes perfect sense, while Europe wants to keep borrowing German savings so they don't have to endure any austerity. I hope Germany sticks it to the liberal profligates.

    Austerity is an Epic Fail and I'm completely against it

    Europe and the US too should go through a repricing like the USA did in 1920 to wash all the crap out.

    Assets, liabilities and wages all need to be repriced.

    It won't happen, of course, the government will just continue to paper over the problem

    Talk about failing to learn from experience....

    ...the Left's goal is to make America more like Europe...

    even though being Europe isn't working for Europe...
