Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
yeah, certain preconditions have to be there; in this case, the closure of foreign subsidiaries. I suppose the problem will always be where to draw the line.

The federal EU state is coming, though, and if the only way to make the people understand is to bring the nation-state to its fiscal knees, well, let's do it. Better sooner than later. We desperately need a democratically-elected body big enough to take on global companies (that are already profiting from the unbalanced situation, like they were in the XIX century before nation-state bodies stabilised), and parochial feelings are holding us back.
