Euro Crisis: „A Flood of Inflation“

[Original title: „Prof. Markus Kerber zur Eurokrise: ‚Ein Schwall von Inflation‘„, in korrektheiten.com, January 14, 2012. Translation by MKH]

He conducts research on public finance and economic policy. The occasion was the downgrading of the creditworthiness of France from AAA to AA + by the rating agency Standard & Poors. It was about the impact on the Euro. Kerber was speaking in plain language. He said among other things:
