Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The solution is double voting and an additional-member system.

Give states seats in the parliament proportionally to the square root of population (Penrose rule). Then complete the EP with seats to be assigned to EU-wide party lists for overall proportionality.

The peak-to-trough part of the business cycle is an outlier. Carnot would have died laughing.
