Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What we're discussion here is specifically and only how an EU finance Ministry should be funded if it is to be effective in ameliorating structural imbalances within the Union at a trade level.

However if you concede the principle that all EU regions should harmonise/converge to some form of equality, that brings all sorts of other policy and service areas into play.  

We are so far off even trying to achieve equality at any level, I would settle for an EU Finance Ministry funded by a tax on trade imbalances and promoting greater economic equality at a macro level as a first step.

A Common EU public health service?  Yes, we can dream.
