Wouldn't this multi-EU concept break the basic goal of the original ECM, to bind Germany and France together financially. And, by extension, to bind Germany and the rest of Europe together?

Seems to me that if you're willing to go through the disruption of breaking up the Euro Zone, why not take the smaller disruption of moving towards a federal system? People will complain about Brussels taking away their local power, but that system has worked here for a hundred years or so...

  • Allow free migration of labor.
  • Shift a lot of the tax burden to the federal level, to reduce tax havens.
  • Unify regulations, tax laws, etc.
  • Actually enforce the regulations.
