Abstract [en]

The sovereign debt crises have demonstrated clearly the inadequacy of the earlier system of economics governance in the euro area. Parallel with the acute crisis management, far-reaching reforms of the rules system have been instituted. These include the new regulations adopted in the so-called 'Six-pack' in November 2011 based on earlier proposals from the European Commission and the van Rompuy Task Force. The latest addition is the intergovernmental treaty on a fiscal compact agreed in March 2012 ('Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economics and Monetary Union'). This article discusses whether or not these reforms are likely to work.
