Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I sympathize, truly, and wonder how you imagine EU/EP could assert tax authority without further alienating disaffected nationals? I realize, that each member is already tied to "paid in" capital to ECB operations and, no less risky, proportionate share of each 7-year budget/re-distributions. To the point: Is the Sarcozy/Hollande/Macron/ path through joint bonds prudent and necessary to this end? Or are you leaning to transnational listing structure to sharpen constituents' focus on democratic EU gov representation?

iirc, there was broad-but-shallow resistance to political group restructure when Macron raise the issue last year.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
