Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is just infuriating. After total failure of neoliberal economic policy, the IMF and the ECB and even the Commission are even more into it, and all governments fall over themselves to follow the advice even at the cost of losing elections. And one has to notice the political colour of most countries under attack, and how all centre-left-led countries are hit without exception, and how all these "Socialists" (of Greece, Portugal, Spain, to some extent Iceland, and until recently Hungary) do the bidding of the Right on the economy rather than stand up for their people. We have the ironic situation where it is Hungary's right-wing government that alone tries something different, but may well discredit that route of action before a Socialist-not-only-in-name would attempt it elsewhere...
