There is much discussion about the reform of the governance of the Eurozone, starting with the evolution of the European Stability Mechanism. It is necessary to foster growth and convergence while avoiding debt mutualisation. To this end a European Treasury should finance investments, European public goods (including defence) and cope with asymmetric shocks. It should be financed by own resources, managed by the Commission and be democratic accountable to the European Parliament and the Council.
