Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems highly ironic that an economist would gloss over the highly problematic economic policy making for the EU, especially the EC and ECB. How can it be justified that economic policy that suits the needs of the wealthiest member has to be accepted by all the rest even when it is highly unsuitable for those members?

Economic governance is the most basic determinant of any society. I know that the neoliberal discourse would like to abdicate economic policy making to some 'invisible hand' and pretend that There Is No Alternative to present policies. But that is patently absurd.
