Wake-up call after Brexit: The euro needs reforms

The euro is not equipped for future crises. This is the result of the report by an international expert group. The report puts forward a three-step plan to reform the European Economic and Monetary Union: 1. A first-aid kit for monetary union that addresses shortcomings in crisis management and economic coordination. 2. Growth in the EU has to be strengthened by a combination of investments and reforms. 3. In the medium term, the euro has to be based on a large degree of risk sharing and sovereignty sharing. This goes hand in hand with developing the permanent European rescue mechanism, the ESM, into a European Monetary Fund under greater parliamentary control.
