Réaction à la note publiée par le CEPS » A New Budget for the European Union? » de A. Iozzo, S. Micossi et MT. Salvemini
A diagnosis is the least controversial part of nearly every proposal of the reform of the EU finances. When it comes to define solutions opinions starts to differ. The excellent paper by Alfonso Iozzo, Stefanno Micosi and Maria Teresa Salvemini may serve as confirmation of this general rule. It does not devote much of the analysis to the deficiencies of the current financial system of the EU. It proposes changes to the EU budget which are very interesting and which offer a good basis to rethink the purpose of EU finances.
