"Speech by Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank at the Global Investment Conference in London" - 2012.07.26

"The last summit was a real success because for the first time in many years, all the leaders of the 27 countries of Europe, including UK etc., said that the only way out of this present crisis is to have more Europe, not less Europe. (...)

When people talk about the fragility of the euro and the increasing fragility of the euro, and perhaps the crisis of the euro, very often non-euro area member states or leaders, underestimate the amount of political capital that is being invested in the euro.

And so we view this, and I do not think we are unbiased observers, we think the euro is irreversible. And it’s not an empty word now, because I preceded saying exactly what actions have been made, are being made to make it irreversible.

But there is another message I want to tell you.

Within our mandate, the ECB is ready to do whatever it takes to preserve the euro. And believe me, it will be enough."

유럽경제위기를 넘기기 위해, 또 유럽통합의 구상을 실현시키기 위해
유럽이 Political Union 결성에 성공한다면....

며칠 전, ECB(유럽중앙은행) 총재인 Mario Draghi의 이 선언은 역사에 남을 듯.

Mario Draghi 총재의 이 선언 직후, 유럽 금융시장은 조금이나마 안정을 되찾았고, 현재의 경제위기를 넘길 수 있다는 자신감을 조금이나마 얻은 상태.

거의.. 선동문 역할을 하고 있는 Draghi 총재의 선언..


물론, '더 강한 통합'은 달성하기 쉽지 않다.
달성하기 어려운 유럽의 Political Union.
