Neither Germany’s patience nor its resources are infinite.
The UK is going to have an “in or out” referendum soon.
Greece is unlikely to have a government worth the name in 2013.
Hollande has lost the plot.
Madrid and its autonomous regions cannot agree.
So it’s obvious what you need to do. And now.

How does an Italian post office compare to an American DMV?

Italy does not need any financial stimulus package but a cultural revolution. The italians are intelligent, but will exhaust every theoretical potential solution until eventually accepting a practical solution. They accept inefficiency and sloppy work habits (visit an italian post office if you don’t believe me; all employees look as though they’re in drug rehab!). Nobody is ever on time, but everyone seems to have all the time in the world to come with endless responses to the simplest questions. They talk in paragraphs, not sentences.

It’s a great place to live, but there are challenges.

(quote) previous governments had racked up huge debts that had “put a burden on Italians who were then children, or had not even been born – that’s the great harm that was done to families … eighty per cent of our time is taken up trying to secure a country devastated by irresponsibility.”
