      In the piece “Why the Eurozone suffers from a Germany problem”, the comments are more interesting than the article. It’s amazing that the lazy and unproductive club Med countries blame their problems on Germany. They are trying to make a virtue of socialist profligacy. The Eurozone and EU will soon implode from the attempt of each country to benefit at the expense of the others. The sooner the better for them.
