You can stop. If southern Europe goes into the tank, Germany is right behind them. Those countries represent a large market for Germany’s export based economy and German banks have billions in loans there. That is why Merkel is desparate to find a solution. I don’t think there is a solution other than to let the countries go bankrupt, revert to soverign currencies and let the market work things out. Anyway, the dollar is going to the winner in this even though we are bystanders.
