    EU: Radical Changes Coming- 4 Big Choices Weighed

     

    The source of the likely big news is still the EU. Whatever path the EU takes, it will represent a radical change for the EU, be it in policy, or in the makeup or even existence, of the EU as we know it. Here’s a quick look at what to watch this week.

     

    1& 2: WILL GERMANY LET THE ECB PUT A CEILING EU SOVEREIGN BOND YIELDS?

     

    1. The consensus is that the only way to stave off a wave of sovereign and bank defaults that engulfs the EU (if not global) economy is for it to essentially forget about certain inconvenient laws and treaties and let the ECB print as much money as it needs to buy up as many bonds as needed to keep sovereign borrowing costs down. This solution too involves lots of pain, risks gutting the value of the Euro, etc. News on this issue will likely be THE market mover this week.

     

    2. Inaction: With no other plan on the menu, the alternative inaction risks an EU collapse that could easily go global.

     

     

    3. WHO STAYS, LEAVES,  EU

     

    As John Mauldin points out here, behind closed doors a number of nations are examining whether it’s cheaper to leave the EU or stay. Leaks on that front could also be market moving.

     

     

    4. CAPITAL CONTROLS COMING TO AN EU NEAR YOU? NO WHERE TO RUN

     

    Bruce Krasting reported this past week that the EU is attempting to force the Swiss government and its banks to transfer assets of all Greek citizens back to the rather unstable Greek banks from which they came. The goal is to prevent capital flight that is killing Greek banks, even if it risks Greek citizens’ losing everything they have  in the not so unlikely event of a Greek banking crisis.

     

    If that happens, what’s to stop Brussels from “repatriating” (read: stealing) EU citizens’ money that was sent to safer havens for the sake of propping up shaky EU banks that could well fail and take that money with them? Yes, that does sound like outright government theft.
