ECB President Draghi's press conference today didn't tell me anything new. All I heard was that the ECB stands ready with monetary support, subject to conditions, to those Euro area countries that request a bailout...something he's been repeating since June.
I wonder what progress, if any, the EU has made on actually implementing meaningful fiscal/monetary/financial/economic/political reforms...from my viewpoint, it appears that nothing is being done to rectify a fractured and ailing Euro zone, which is in recession, and as unemployment rises to 11.6% in the Euro area.
