Abstract

To the extent that the European Union (EU) financial system is subject to structural deficiencies and constitutional challenges which render it less than optimal, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) has brought those deficiencies squarely into view and issued the challenge for institutional reform to overcome them. While the coming into force of the Treaty of Lisbon will potentially smooth the path to further European integration and enable the new President of the EU and EU 'Foreign Minister' to communicate and pursue EU interests more vigorously, there is a need for greater fiscal power to be assigned to the EU level of governance to complement other reforms.
