Charles Wyplosz schaut nicht sehr optimistisch ins Neue Jahr.
"The bottom line is that, even though some important steps were taken in 2012, the most difficult ones still lie ahead. Much remains to be done by unwilling politicians. So, regrettably, things will have to get worse before they get better. [...]
There is no easy option for the Eurozone after three years of deep mismanagement. Governments will not accept drastic action unless forced to. This means that we need another round of crisis worsening. Since every day that passes by is a day of misery and since the eventual costs are rising as public debts keep growing, the best that we can hope for is that it happens in 2013 rather than in 2014."
Ich hoffe ja immer noch, dass mal ein politischer Fortschritt gemacht wird, ohne dass die Krise vorher erst wieder eskalieren muss. Aber wahrscheinlich hat Wyplosz Recht.
