Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I just quibble that the specific proposals Merkel and Schäuble are bringing in terms of fedeal Europe are nothing like federal Germany: no federal government with a significant budget of its own that is elected by and responsible to a federal parliament, no transfers from richer to poorer states, instead undemocratic control of national budgets and a US-style elected President.
