Jens Weidmann's isolation increases, a senior member of Angela Merkel's party saying the Bundesbank chief won't sway Germany's support for the ECB's extraordinary measures. "We don't have a rift within Germany, we have different roles," says Michael Meister, praising Weidmann for fighting the good fight.

    BUBA is used to name the Bundsbank before the Euro, so i suggest
    to Weidmann to get back to the DeutschMark, to manage the German economy and the German way of managing its discipline,
    So get out from the Euro is the best Solution for Weidmann

    so much for germany's supposed inflation-phobia, i always guessed it was bogus...

     

    this makes it much more likely that the euro endgame will be weimar, not forced euro exits

     

    ironically, this sort of green light to debt monetization probably helps the euro in the short term.
