"This crisis offers a tremendous opportunity for Europe. It has defined the agenda for years to come: banking union, fiscal union, and political union.

No word about the detrimental social impacts of the EU's neo-liberal ideology, no word about the sustainability crisis which caused global economic disruption in the first place.
