On December 6, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy released his report on deepening economic and monetary Union.

The text, which will be discussed at the Summit of Heads of State and Government on December 12 and 13, sets out a roadmap of three stages; from now until the end of 2013, implementation of European bank supervision by the European Central Bank; 2013-2014, establishment of a single authority to manage restructuring and liquidation of distressed banks in the eurozone and targeted support to countries in difficulty; and after 2014, setting up a “fiscal capacity” structure as an early step towards a euro area-wide central budget.

May the force be with us!

“Angela Forever”

Helmut Kohl was Chancellor of the “German reunification“. Gerhard Schröder, of peace. Angela Merkel has first been the Chancellor of Europe, but her second incarnation may be that of the chancellor of austerity.

On December 4, Angela Merkel was elected to the head of the Christian-Democratic Union (CDU) – for the seventh time – with 97.94 per cent of the vote of delegates who attended the party’s congress in Hanover. She will therefore lead the 2013 general election campaign, which she has a good chance of winning. Currently polling around 68 per cent of the popular vote, she is the most popular ruling post-war German Chancellor.
