Charlemagne blogger

Jeg liker Economists faste Europa-kommentar signert Charlemagne — det er noe med den britiske innstillingen som skinner gjennom, passe kynisk, mer positivt innstilt til europeisk integrasjon enn de fleste briter, men samtidig med ironisk distanse til Brussel, og selvsagt, i tråd med bladets profil, alltid på vakt for liberale og markedsøkonomiske prinsipper. Nylig har Karl den store også begynt å blogge, og Charlemagne’s Notebook er føyd til min (altfor lange) faste leseliste.

Denne ukens Charlemagne dreier seg om maktspillet rundt hvem som skal bli EU-kommisjonens neste leder — får Barroso en ny periode, eller blir han skjøvet ut? Megetsigende kontrast: Barroso beskyldes ofte for å være for passiv, man vil ha en sterk president i Kommisjonen. I neste åndedrag beskyldes han så for å være for nidkjær i forsvaret av det indre marked!:

When leaders say that the commission is being too passive, they actually mean the reverse: they think it is too zealous about enforcing Euro-rules on free competition. They want it to stand aside so interventionist governments can create “European industrial champions” through measured doses of protectionism, privileged access to public contracts or cosy collusion between firms in different bits of Europe.
