This booklet is the collection of blog posts, written on a weekly basis during the peak years of the euro-crisis between 2010 and 2012, with a focus on the German crisis management. They witness the political confusion, the difficult search for solutions; the general stress of the Euro-system and Europe at large; and the overall claim for a German leadership during the first month of the crisis. Germany needed long to correspond to this claim and was blamed doing "too little too late". The blog posts also witness the political clash between the quest for "big and rapid solutions" (e.g. Eurobonds) from many European countries and the German Euro-rescue strategy finally chosen, combining fiscal compact, sound fiscal policies and structural reforms.
