Paul Krugman’s brilliant article on the European economic crisis prompted me to dwell on the theme.
Or if you are Twitter addict, just search on #OlliRehn:
If fear grabs your attention, Rehn allegedly has aspirations to take over Europe’s No. 1 job from Jose Manuel Barroso!
Here are some open-questions that quickly come to mind
- It’s important perhaps to question whether Olli Rehn is more a bureaucrat than a politician?
- As a politician, surely Rehn would be setting policy that would be best for Europe?
- Meanwhile, as a bureaucrat perhaps Rehn is looking for ongoing patronage from Germany‘s leaders?
- With Olli Rehn in power and Europe’s youth largely unemployed, surely Europe is vulnerable to political extremism, just like Germany in the 1930s?
