From today’s Open Europe news summary:

El País reports that Spain, France and Italy are wary of German plans to introduce binding ‘reform contracts’ between the European Commission and eurozone countries – and want these contracts to explicitly envisage some form of ‘compensation’ in return for the reform effort.

I have a better ideal.  Why doesn’t Germany tell the Spanish, French, and Italians “Auf Wiedersehen!” and leave the EU altogether? Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.  Patrick Barron
