Europe Is Beyond Rescue
David Warren, Ottawa Citizen
There will be a fourth European summit-to- end -all-summits, almost certainly, before the end of the year. Like the previous ones, it will try to save the short-term situation, at the cost of mounding the accumulated slag-pile higher. The solutions are, in every case so far as I can see, of a piece with the background causes of the problem. They are paper solutions, and worse, paper solutions the markets can now see through.
