It would be incorrect to conclude that last week’s formation of a new government in Athens categorically preempted the looming Greek tragedy which threatened the entire euro zone. Europe is by no means safe, although the Greek electorate’s narrow pro-euro preference is clearly better than the alternative that would have triggered potentially catastrophic chain reactions.

It’s a relief but at best a very temporary one. The pro-bailout coalition doesn’t represent a decisive turning point. It’s merely a brief intermission in the unfolding drama. Europe was spared an immediate crash but the deep divide remains between its wealth-generating northern economies and the welfare-reliant south.
