Yes, we will install a committee that will deliberately try to waste money.
BERLIN (Reuters) – A co-leader of Germany’s Greens, a possible partner in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s next government, said on Wednesday the next head of the Eurogroup should support a shift away from austerity and toward investment and more fiscal solidarity.
The Greens are set to start exploratory talks next week with Merkel’s conservatives on forming a coalition government that also includes the pro-business, fiscally hawkish Free Democrats (FDP) after an election in September.
Unlike the FDP, who have cautioned against proposals by French President Emmanuel Macron for deeper fiscal integration in the single currency bloc, the Greens support common tax collection and an investment pact within the 19-country euro zone.
In January, Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem will step down as president of the Eurogroup, an informal body that plays a key role in shaping the economic policy of the bloc. The group will vote for a new chairman at a meeting in December.
“The upcoming leadership switch at the Eurogroup should be used as an opportunity for a new start in European fiscal and economic policy,” Greens co-chief Simone Peter said in a statement.

A father of two applied for a job as equal opportunity commissioner in a government department. He worked as a part-time state official before while raising his kids and decided to help other part-time parents to deal with their problems.
The law in his state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern demands that each government agency must have at least one commissioner for equal opportunities who is elected by the female staff there.
Both the active and passive vote is restricted to women only. The suitor saw this as a discrimination against his sex.
The court decided that the law restricting the vote to only one sex is constitutional because the state constitution of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern includes a plea to end inequality between men and women. In the eye of the court the structural discrimination against women would justify the discrimination against men with regards to these specific positions to offset the perceived disparity.
Tenebom used to write as an alibi Jew for the left-wing anti-Israel news outlet ZEIT. I haven’t seen much of his writing lately and my guess is that he was not leftist enough for them. Yes, this means that they are more leftist than a Jewish New Yorker theater artist!
Pamela Geller, who also happens to be a Jewish New Yorker, read his latest work. They both share a fascination with the immigration turmoil in Germany. Here is her reaction to the book.
