Rowe's comments on Krugman

Although I basically agree with Krugman’s view on the recent Irish crises, I found his comparison of a EU country with US states (here and here) a bit implausible, but I did not know why.

Now the surprisingly obvious answer is provided by Nick Rowe:
The FED is a much better lender of last resort than the ECB.
