It Takes a Crisis To Make a Continent

It takes a crisis to make a continent, says Gabor Steingart, the chief-editor of Handelsblatt. The continent is Europe and the crisis is in Greece. Is Mr. Steingart an optimistic? We could say so, nevertheless he has a point. All steps towards European concert came after periods of crisis. It was about wars before, it's about economy today. I think it depends not only on the facts as seen in Brussels (and Berlin); also on the facts on the ground in Greece. It could be the birthday of a real European Union; or the end of it.

But you should read Gabor Steingart's op-ed in today's NY Times.
