‘The Crisis Has Hit the Entire Core of the Euro Zone’

Confidence in Germany’s finances is flagging after Wednesday’s disappointing sovereign bond auction. The situation complicates Berlin’s conflict with the European Commission over its hope to introduce euro bonds as a solution to the currency crisis. German commentators are critical of both sides on Thursday.

On the same day that conflict between Berlin and the European Commission over so-called euro bonds flared up, an auction of German ten-year bonds failed, with investors purchasing barely half of the €6 billion offering.
