haha, it wasn't always this way! And believe me, they're kicking and screaming at it - and it ain't over yet. The Union may fall apart over it in the end (but that would be stupid on their part. Nevertheless, stupidity hasn't stopped them in the past...).

This should help =) http://www.businessspectator.com.au/bs.nsf/Article/eurozone-Portugal-Greece-Ireland-bailout-default-pd20110414-FVU3A?OpenDocument

"On Monday, the IMF cut its economic forecasts for both Portugal and Ireland, and now expects Portugal to contract both this year and next. Portugal recently requested a bailout from its European peers to escape ruinous debt-financing costs. Ireland and Greece were bailed out last year by the EU and the IMF."

...where "European peers" should be read "Germany".
