europe's problem in a nutshell

the ECB made a video game:
Despite having a few other things going on, the European Central Bank found time to release an iPhone app this fall. It's called €conomia. (You can also play on your computer.)

The goal of the game is to keep inflation just below 2 percent.
maybe in version 2.0 you can also try to do other stuff, like helping those economies you've strangled through austerity measures, or stopping the entire currency union from falling apart.
