The German leader ought to be defeated in the next elections for blowing the handling of the Greek debt crisis. She’s been incredibly naive to treat the matter as a solvency issue for one country. Greece, for all it’s failures, just happened to be the weakest of the small indebted Euro economies. Financial markets speculated against it, and Europe failed to see the problem as what it was and stop it in time. Sarkozy and even Obama urged Merkel to bring solidarity in the Euro but she thought voters wouldn’t like it. Then the Greek crisis became a Euro credibility crisis, with markets devaluing the Euro and influential economists such as Krugman and Mankiw writing that the Euro may be “over”. To be sure, German voters won’t be happy, but they’ll be unhappy about Merkel’s colossal failure of leadership over the Euro zone.
