Soul-searching in Brussels is misplaced. The agonising exposes ignorance: the problem is with the means, not the mission. Pan-European integration (“convergence”) was the aim. But tax policies drive divergence. Regions on the spatial periphery (from Greece to Ireland and up to Scotland) automatically gutted as net income (rents) are magnetically drawn to the centre (the London/Frankfurt/Paris triangle). Rent seeking triumphs. Austerity is the price.
