(BBC) Stephanie Flanders–No plan yet for the Eurozone

After spending yesterday in Berlin, I can tell you the German government is mightily fed up with all this speculation – and fed up with getting blamed for everything bad happening in the global economy (last week’s cover of the Economist, for example).

I interviewed the Deputy Finance Minister – Secretary of State Steffen Kampeter – after the German chancellor’s strident speech to the Reichstag.

He made clear that on one major point – eurobonds – the speculation about what Germany might be willing to accept in time for the summit was simply wrong.

Read it all (emphasis hers).
