Leaders debate EMU consolidation after bank supervision deal
In order to achieve the completion of EMU, the 27-countries bloc made further progress on the roadmap to achieve such goals, after the agreement for a Euro bank supervisor by the ECB earlier on the week, which will police north of 200 flagship banks.Today’s European leaders meeting, which again concluded over 2 hours past midnight Brussels time, showed some understandable differences on how to go about the next critical steps, such as a banking resolution, measure to reduce country’s deficit and a budget for the whole bloc. One of the notorious opposed members to see mutualisation of the debts after the ECB bank’s oversight role, was German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who continues to play it safely against passing new liabilities for German taxpayers ahead of next year’s national elections.

As Reuters notes, “a German delegation source said that in the summit room, she opposed a joint resolution fund for banks at this stage and rejected any big “fiscal capacity” to help euro zone states cope with economic shocks or reward them for structural reforms. Instead, she said EU countries should concentrate on consolidating their own budgets, according to notes of the meeting and an account provided by one participant.” Merkel, once out of the official meeting, told reporters that the bank union deal was a ‘very important’ decision taken by the EZ leaders, and that such agreement paves the way for future positive developments of a currency union. On the transaction tax, she suspects a solidarity fund for Euro zone states with limits 10 to 20 billion Euros. – FXstreet.com
