Wolfgang Münchau gibt in seiner FT-Kolumne seine Einschätzung über die von Herrn Schäuble auf europäischer Ebene vorangetriebenen Pläne zur Gestaltung eines EWFs wider:
"This is not about helping countries in trouble. This is about helping them to get out."Er scheint die Pläne insgesamt nicht zu mögen...
"I derive two principal conclusions from this mess. The first is that a monetary union comprising 16 or more EU members will ultimately require a fully fledged fiscal union, or fail."
"The second conclusion is that a rules-based monetary union is still possible, but only among a group of similar countries – in terms of their economic development, and their fundamental political attitudes towards economic policy."
