Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If one of the 'scare' youtube videos currently circulating on FB about the proposed legal powers of the proposed ESM has any basis in fact then 'for whom' would clearly be those in and benefiting from the financial sector, as proposals include allowing the ESM to sue governments that do not comply with requirements while making the same ESM immune to suits by governments.

Fortunately EU institutions are no less likely to do this than are US institutions likely to seek powers to arrest and hold citizens without warrant.  OH --- wait.
