Libération - France | 09/12/2011

The United States of Europe

In view of the resolutions passed at the EU summit in Brussels, the left-liberal daily Libération calls for stronger political integration in Europe: "The debt crisis shows that the markets have no confidence in the survival of a currency without a state, that is without a federal political and economic power able to impose a common fiscal discipline on the federated states and to help them if need be. Some of Europe's politicians, notably in Germany, have understood this perfectly well and are calling for the creation of a 'United States of Europe'. This would be the sole means of conferring democratic legitimacy on the Eurozone. Now that the countries are losing sovereignty over their budgets it is time to team up the national parliaments with the European Parliament."
