Sebrané citáty


Situace není jednoduchá, pro její dokreslení najdete níže sebrané citáty různých osobností.

1)      Angela Merkelová (německá kancléřka): „The current crisis facing the Euro is the biggest test Europe has faced for decades, even since the Treaty of Rome was signed in 1957. If the Euro fails, then Europe fails. The Euro is in danger. If we do not deal with this danger, then the consequences for us in Europe are incalculable.“

2)     Herman Van Rompuy (Prezident EU): „The Euro has never had the infrastructure that it requires. We are in a survival crisis. We all have to work together in order to survive with theEuroZone, because if we do not survive with the EuroZone, we will not survive with the European Union. This crisis in the EuroZone will strengthen European integration. That is my firm belief.“

3)     Gerhard Schroeder (bývalý německý kancléř): „The current crisis makes it relentlessly clear that we cannot have a common currency zone without a common fiscal, economic, and social policy.“

4)      Christian Wulff (německý prezident): „I regard the huge buy-up of bonds of individual states by the EuroCB as legally and politically questionable. Article 123 of the Treaty on the EU workings prohibits the ECB from directly purchasing debt instruments, in order to safeguard the central bank’s independence.“

5)    Josef Ackerman (CEO Deursche Bank): „It is an open secret that numerous European banks would not survive having to revalue sovereign debt held on the banking book at market levels. All this reminds one of the autumn of 2008.“

6)     Mervyn King (guvernér Bank of England): „Dealing with a banking crisis was difficult enough, but at least there were public sector balance sheets on to which the problems could be moved. Once you move into sovereign debt, there is no answer. There is no backstop.“

7)    Christine Lagarde (šéfová MMF): „Developments this summer have indicated we are in a dangerous new phase. There has been a clear crisis of confidence that has seriously aggravated the situation. Measures need to be taken to ensure that this vicious circle is broken.“

8)      Prince Hermann Otto zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich (Místopředseda Bundestagu): „We must consider whether it would not be better for the currency union and for Greece itself to go for debt restructuring and an exit from the Euro.“

9)    Jacek Rostowski (polský minstr financí): „European elites, including German elites, must decide if they want the Euro to survive, even at a high price, or not. If not, we should prepare for a controlled dismantling of the currency zone.“

10)  George Soros: „We are on the verge of an economic collapse which starts, let’s say, inGreece. The financial system remains extremely vulnerable.“

11)  Stephane Deo, Paul Donovan, a Larry Hatheway (UBS): „Under the current structure and with the current membership, the Euro does not work. Either the current structure will have to change, or the current membership will have to change. Member states would be economically better off if they had never joined. European monetary union was generally mis-sold to the population of the Europe.“

12)  Alastair Newton (Nomura Securities): „We believe that we are just about to enter a critical period for the EuroZone. The threat of some sort of break-up between now and yearend is greater than it has been at any time since the start of the crisis.“

13)  Professor Giacomo Vaciago (Catholic University, Milán): „It is clear that the Euro has virtually failed over the last ten years, even if you are not supposed to say that.“
