Watchers Council "EU on the brink" Edition

International Liberty

The Watchers Council: Over 30 articles from some of the top conservative bloggers around the world and all in one easy to read location!
If it's Wednesday (and sometimes early Thursday) that can mean only one thing! That the time has come for the weekly collection of article nominations at the Watchers Council to make themselves known!
This week’s Watchers Council article offerings are dedicated to the EU Summit that commences on Thursday and ends on Friday in Brussels.

On the eve of this critical meeting the question is whether there will be any political will to actually deal with the financial crisis or if it will simply result in rhetorical platitudes that have little chance of solving anything.

And even if there were the will to make the tough decisions required for a long-run economic solution in Europe (i.e. Germany), would the time needed for an agreement to be reached, the plan to be implemented and any potential tangible results seen as a result simply take way too long!

High on the list of priorities are of course Spain, Italy and Greece but as the downgrade of Germany Tuesday indicates, there are no countries that are immune from the financial dangers that are lurking.

What will be on the EU Summit agenda?

Much will be on the agenda but a common Eurobond that would have all of the EU members jointly responsible for payment likely, at least for now, will be a non-starter!

The tipoff was uttered on Tuesday by German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday who said that "I don’t see total debt liability as long as I live" and that eurobonds are "economically wrong and counterproductive".

I suppose it will all become much more apparent on Thursday as news from the meetings leak and the markets react.
Until that time, for the week of June 25, 2012 the Watchers Council nominations are...
