European Council 8-9 December 2011

In recent months, is has often been expected that a certain summit of the EU or the euro area would be a "decisive" one and leaders would take "decisive" measures to tackle the crisis. On the eve of the last European Council this year, the expectations are also too high, although it is clear that we can hope at most to get clarity about the direction and the goal.
