Um pouco de bom senso

The greatest threat to the euro’s survival is the increasingly poisonous politics of bail-outs in both north and south. Northerners have every right to demand responsibility from those they help. But they also have responsibilities of their own: they must show realism in designing bail-outs that do not inflict unnecessary pain; patience to delay austerity at home while others recover; and, above all, haste to rebuild the rickety financial structure of the euro zone. The first step to preventing another southern crisis is not hectoring from snowy forests, but creating a genuine banking union.
