Two drastic steps in institutional policy are needed to permanently solve the eurozone crisis, says Patrick Artus, chief economist at Natixis. One, the region should start a process of joint financing (i.e. pooling of debt), and two, components of federalism need to be implemented. His article on the subject, published as a guest commentary for International Financing Review, was the leading story on the publication’s website. He says that the region needs more than policy-makers’ willingness – there must be commitment to change from reaction to restoration.
