Zur Debatte um #Eurobonds:

1) italiens problem sind nicht die neuen schulden, sondern die alten.

2) ein bailout ist kein akt der solidarität mit dem schuldner, sondern seinen gläubigern.

substanz entscheidet: in der wirtschaft in form von eigenkapital über die widerstandsfähigkeit von unternehmen, in der politik (hoffentlich) in form von sachverstand über die wahlchancen von parteiprogrammen. fehlt es an zweitem, erodiert auch das erste.

richtig, gleicher grundgedanke nur verschiedene akteure (hausbank vs. finanzamt), aber der staat (= gesamtheit der steuerzahler) geht jeweils ins risiko. beide instrumente sind selbstdosierend, zielgenau und reaktionsschnell. darauf kommt es jetzt an.

im fokus der krise verengt sich das handeln reflexhaft auf das hier und jetzt. es gilt, das schlimmste abzuwenden – richtig! aber es muss eine abwägung bleiben, weil es nicht die letzte krise sein wird. daher gilt es, die langfristeffekte mitzudenken. 4/4
