Oggi un bel pezzo di Gideon Rachman sul Financial Times. Il titolo: “Isoliamo e sovraccarichiamo la Germania a nostro rischio”. Il passaggio qua sotto mi sembra che illustri abbastanza chiaramente quali siano i dubbi dei tedeschi. Che non hanno tutti i torti.
Consider just one of the proposals on the shopping list: a Europe-wide bank deposit insurance scheme. As a senior Dutch politician who shares the German view, puts it: “We cannot push through a banking union when the French have just cut their retirement age to 60 and we have raised ours to 67.” From the Dutch and German point of view, it is unfair for their citizens to underwrite the banks of countries using their own money to pay social benefits that are more generous than those on offer in Germany or the Netherlands.
