Merkel puts the Euro at risk

Last week, Germany proved to be the greatest threat to the stability of the Euro zone, together with Greece. The German press is suggesting that this is mainly due to the liberal party leader Rösler, who is loosely talking about an „orderly“ bankruptcy in Greece. But the main responsibility lies with Chancellor Merkel and her finance minister Schäuble: They managed to create a dangerous „double bind“ by linking the future of Germany and of the eurozone as a whole to reform progress in Greece.
