Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Now, you're on to something: transfer payments. How transfer payments (not 'authoritarism') curry political loyalty.

Consider, if you will litigation today between states and federal government about whether or not US gov may withhold payment from "sanctuary cities," for example of coercion. And no, this tactic was not invented 40 years ago.

Under what conditions has EU gov similarly rewarded or impoverished a member state?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
