Comments on: Ben Bernanke could teach the EU a thing or two Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Ken_Muira Tue, 19 Jul 2011 12:22:14 +0000 Good analysis Kathleen, but i dont think the Europeans are delaying as such, i think an opportunity to postpone decisions has risen i.e the US debt issue and they are awaiting to see what the US politicians will do, so that they can probably copy its actions, since they are the world largest economy. If the US raises its debt celling and continues to print more $$ to solve its problems, then Europe might take the same measure to bail out Greece, printing more Euros, but it US takes more stern measure, increasing taxes, cut spending and probably an interest rate hike, then Greece is in trouble because they will have to be auctioned. This way economies are balanced.
