Bank of England Governor : More fiscal union, less austerity

Euractive general - Ven, 30/01/2015 - 07:22

Mark Carney, the Governor the Bank of England, has urged the eurozone to move towards fiscal union and end its hardline austerity policies in a bid to promote growth.

Carney praised the “boldness” of a recent announcement by the European Central Bank that it plans to buy €1.1 trillion of government bonds from eurozone members between now and September 2016.

However, he criticised hardline budgetary policies and a lack of progress on fiscal union, which risked leaving the eurozone in a “debt trap” leading to a second lost decade.

Minister: Greece misinterpreted over Russia sanctions

Euractive general - Gio, 29/01/2015 - 14:48

Greece's new finance minister Yanis Varoufakis rejected suggestions that complaints from Athens over a European Union statement on Ukraine meant it was preparing to veto sanctions against Russia.

In a post on his personal blog, Varoufakis said media had distorted the position of the new leftist-led government. The complaint made by Athens to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini had been about a lack of consultation, not about the sanctions themselves, he added.
