Political Union: Europe’s Defining Moment
Driven by an obvious loss of fiscal sovereignty on the part of debtor nations and a de facto loss of sovereignty on the part of creditor nations, the concept of deepening integration on fiscal policy and economic governance gained ground.

Such deepening would pool more powers than ever before at the Union level.
