Tyranny of low expectations?

Or just wisdom;
BRUSSELS - A new survey has revealed large differences in economic confidence and perceptions about the EU between northern and southern member states.
While 80 percent of Swedes and 77 percent of Germans expressed confidence about the state of their country's economy, this contrasted with only 1 percent of Spaniards, and 2 percent of Cypriots and Greeks.
The French aren't much happier;
Only 6 percent of French people were content with the prospects of their economy with 92 percent responding negatively. France has come under pressure from Brussels to bring down its budget deficit more rapidly and to liberalise its labour market.
