Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
What the EU needs above all is to move away from the silly notion of trying to regulate the bottom line, and occasionally the top line, but leaving everything in between as Somebody Else's Problem.

The EU needs to start building and running actual infrastructure - railways, power lines, ports, airports, and other cross-border infrastructure. It needs to do so on budgets and scopes of work determined by engineering reality, not arbitrary fiscal rules. Both because this will directly show people an EU that makes their lives better and because it will foster the correct mentality in the European bureaucracy - a mentality of operations and engineering rather than finance and cost control.
