David Brooks is wrong

A reminder, today, of why I skip David Brooks op-eds

Today:
Over the past few decades, several European nations, like Germany and the Netherlands, have played by the rules and practiced good governance. 

November 2003:
Europe's finance ministers have agreed to suspend the fiscal rules that underpin the euro, eliciting sighs of relief from France and Germany, but driving a wedge through the 12-member monetary union and raising fears about the stability of the single currency.

The rest of the op-ed is equally bad. Worth a read.
