Banking Union: A blueprint for stability?

04 Oct 2013

What is the Banking Union all about? Our new video below explains.  

Banking Union has dominated the European legislative agenda for the past year, but why is it so important?

The proposals aim to break the toxic link between bank debt and sovereign debt and to prevent a repeat of the current crisis through the implementation of four central pillars: improved bank regulation; centralised bank supervision; a harmonised system for restructuring or closing down troubled banks; and the protection of small depositors. This new animated video provides an overview of the Banking Union.

how are they able to keep the euro stable when they own nothing? I looked at their books, assets equal liabilities to the nearest euro. Doesn't that mean they have nothing?

It will be very much convinient and even economical to have 1 euro note instead of the 1 euro coin and also phase out 2 euro coin.
