Lezioni chiave della crisi dell'euro

Quali che siano le decisioni che verranno adottate domenica al vertice dei leader della zona euro, sono tante le lezioni che si possono trarre dalla lunga vicenda che ci ha portato da una crisi localizzata e tutto sommato gestibile (la Grecia a inizio 2010) a una vera e propria crisi sistemica con implicazioni globali...
