Duhhhh, EU injects money into this country.

Road signs among others of 'EU Support' are all over the place.

Smaller countries benefit from these huge money injects and only have to do a small contribution.

Plus, when they get in trouble the big boys will bail 'em out anyways. Reply to the comment answer

AMEN!!!! You win the Lotto (entry into the EU and loads of Euros for infrastructure development, etc.)so why not be optomistic.

Why not be optimistic? Because the creditors might not want to lend "for free" forever?

Hey Ken. Do you think entering the eurozone has been 'winning the lottery'?
~@Ken [03.08.2012, 21:21]
Ask Greece, Italy,Portugal, Ireland, and Spain! Yes I do. Like all Lotto winners they went wild with spending money, digging a hole of which they are still not sure of getting out. I have read that Greece and probably other of the PIIGS misrepresented their true economic status during negotiations to enter the EU. However, I guess one could over press this analogy which I am sure is an over simplification of the beg picture. Hopefully Estonia, with its SISU on steroids, will clinch their teeth and bear more austerity if called for. Now they are looking good compared to the EU as a whole. We'll see.

Estonians are maybe, but I am Afraid Estonian politicans are not: Jürgen Ligi, THE laughing-number in Germany is in the last time very nervous. Mr. Ilves went allready angry, of course against Krugman, but anyway. And today I heard in the radio, that Moodys downgraded Slovenia. A reason? Reply to the comment answer

The EU won't have to bail Estonia out. Their public debt is 6% of GDP. Reply to the comment answer
