A picture paints a thousand words. Here are two pictures, and not many words, covering two events.
One is of the European Central Bank's Quantitative Easing programme, opposed by Germany, depicting the Italian head of the central bank, Mario Draghi (left), and Germany's finance minister, Wolfgang Schäuble (right). The second is of the new Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis (right) with his German counterpart (left), after not even agreeing to disagree on Greece's proposals for managing its debt burden.
