Why they are being so recalcitrant about helping the rest of Europe? I come down to two reasons. First, they know there isn't enough money around so why have Germany, the strong swimmer, be pulled down by all of those weak swimmers that are going to drown anyway. Or second, they have a plan and the plan is to play chicken, to get all of these new conservative governments to make the necessary cuts, see some success and then go all in to help the successful ones. The problem is I can't be sure which is right.
