It needs to be said clearly: letting countries that grew rich thanks to intra-European trade siphon off their neighbors’ tax base has absolutely nothing to do with free markets. It’s called theft. And lending money to people who’ve stolen from us without asking anything in return so as to ensure it doesn’t happen again—that’s called stupidity.
