November 2015

Europe is facing a crisis in growth and competitiveness, primarily due to the fall in investments, while also having to confront new global challenges. The Juncker Plan is an initial response, in which to include investments for the Energy Union, also to comply with the EU pollution limits. 

This requires the introduction of European taxes in the Eurozone (FTT and Carbon Tax) to be allocated to the Plan’s European Fund, as a step towards an additional Budget of the Eurozone with the Juncker Commission as its provisional government.
