Eurokrisen beskrevet gjennom forsider

The Economist har hatt 13 forsider om eurokrisen siden mai 2010, noen av dem helt klassiske. De første het Acropolis Now. den siste så langt var Is this really the end? i slutten av november 2011. Underveis har det vært forsider som If Greece goes... og Be afraidHer kan man bla seg igjennom alle disse 13 forsidene (trykk "next" for å bla):



Også denne uken er det en lederartikkel om eurokrisen, med tittelen "A comedy of euros", der undertittelen er "Britain had a bad summit, but the euro zone had a worse one". Budskapet er ikke spesielt optimistisk:

"Once again Europe’s leaders have failed to solve the euro crisis. The new treaty could easily be killed by the markets or by its rejection in one or more euro-zone country. The EU has suffered plenty of disappointing summits without the sky falling in—a good many of them in the past year. But unlike the marathon dispute over a new constitution, the euro is in a race against time because markets are pushing countries to insolvency. As investors and voters lose faith, the task of saving the single currency grows harder. Sooner or later, the euro will be beyond saving."
