Abstract

The Eurozone financial crisis has shaken the EU to its core and threatens to destroy the great achievements of European integration of past decades. Yet, European leaders are stuck; they are unable to proceed with further political or economic integration without risking the wrath of their country’s voters. Hugo Brady proposes a temporary political union for the Eurozone, beginning in 2014, to expire after 15 years. Such a ‘New Deal’ for the Euro would buy the amount of time European governments require to implement sorely needed reforms.
