Nevieme na ktoré tvrdenie Angely Merkel predseda vlády SR odkazuje. Posledný výrok nemeckej kancelárky o financných trhoch bol spomenutý v jej novorocnom prejave. Angela Merkel povedala, že kríza je daleko od konca a zdôraznila potrebu monitorovania financných trhov:
"The European sovereign debt crisis shows us how important this balance is. The reforms we have agreed to are beginning to take effect. But we still need a lot of patience. The crisis is far from over. More needs to be done internationally, as well, to monitor the financial markets. The world has not sufficiently learned the lesson of the devastating financial crisis of 2008. For never again must such irresponsibility be allowed to take hold as it did then. In the social market economy, the state is the guardian of order, and the public must be able to place its trust in it."
