@INET Berlin: Doing the actual work

While yesterday presented a number of frontrunning scientists discussing current economics and state of the economy in general, academic terms, today starts with ECB executive board member Asmussen. Interstingly, the ECB is quite a bit more positive about the development of the crisis and about the measures taken by politicians. But maybe that's just politics. It also gets more technical. Key message: 1) LTRO bought time, it is not the solution, 2) Now politicians should adjust budgets to "sustainable paths" - but no timeline given. Who could disagree?
But then, briefly and only at the end, a plea for fiscal and political integration, addressed at Germany principally. Nice.
