The June Summit of Ins and Outs
Exhausted and Weary EU Is Looking for the Smallest Common Denominator of its Unity
You know that moment of tiredness when you wish so bad for it all to be over, even something you have put hard work into for years. That moment came on Thursday night in the EU when the leaders of the 28 member countries negotiated, or rather, as sources claim, quarrelled fearsomely and not over ...
The June Summit of Ins and Outs Greece Needs More than a Deal

A mighty consensus is brewing in Brussels that even if a last-minute deal is struck with Greece it is not going to solve neither its problems, nor the Eurozone problems with Greek origin. While numerous Eurogroup meetings and the leaders’ summits continue, the feeling that more than a deal ...

The June Summit of Ins and Outs Northern Eurozone Members Need to be Honest on Greece

The debt crisis in the euro area Greece – a Never Ending Story

The debt crisis in the euro area How Long to the Grexit?

The tired faces of the ministers representing the institutions before the Eurogroup meeting on Thursday turned into grim expressions after the session, which was longer than anticipated, considering the outcome.

The debt crisis in the euro area Greece’s Final Countdown Has Started

The debt crisis in the euro area The Game of Greek Roulette Spins to an End

At first glance this game looked a lot like Russian roulette, but it turned out a bit different. At its core the game is trying to fool the adversary whether the shot is real or has it reached its target. Over the last few weeks the game got rough with both sides – Greece and its creditors ...

The debt crisis in the euro area Crisis with Greece Is Political

Croatia is one of the stops in the t ...

The June Summit of Ins and Outs To Brexit or Not To Brexit

It looks like a heavy program for the EU summit starting today in Brussels. There is almost no topic on the agenda that does not test the stability of the Union – whether at its core (the Eurozone) or its entirety. Somewhere in between the quarrel over mandatory immigrant quotas and the ex ...

The June Summit of Ins and Outs The Major Eurozone Reform To Start after the UK Referendum

The new report of the five presidents – the bosses of the Eurogroup, ECB, Euro Summit, European Commission, and European Parliament – reheats some leftover dishes but has some new ideas too. The most important changes that would require opening up of the founding treaties are suggest ...

latest analyses Will There Be a Useful Vote in France’s 2017 Presidential Election?

The year is 2002. Polls are showing (not for the first time by the way) Jacques Chirac’s chances for winning the presidential election as slim. Taking into consideration the suggestion of his closest advisor (and daughter), Claude Chirac, the President starts his campaign earlier than usua ...

The June Summit of Ins and Outs The Fifth President

This is the conclusion in the article of Polish freelance journalist and analyst Dariusz Kalan, published o ...

The June Summit of Ins and Outs There Will Be No Overhaul of the Euro Area. Just Refreshment

A large part of the June EU summit will be dedicated on possible repairs of the euro area with the presentation of the second report of the four presidents - the chiefs of the Commission, Eurogroup, European Council and ECB. Because of Britain, however, no decisions are expected that envisage in ...

Investment Plan vs. Common Budget? EIB Believes the European Parliament Does Not Understand EFSI

The debt crisis in the euro area Dariusz Rosati: EU Has To Change Its Social Model

EU share in global population is 7%. The Union produces 20% of the global gross domestic product but spends 50% of global social spending. 10-50 or even 20 years ago Europe was not threatened by competition from the outside world but now the European social model needs to be rebuilt, said i ...
