Dutch Finance Minister: Southern Europeans Spent €uros on “Alcohol & Women”

Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the socialist Dutch finance minister and president of the Eurogroup, has upset his fellow finance ministers by saying of “countries in crisis”:

Guido doesn’t see money spent on alcohol and women as a waste…
