- The key challenge for the fiscal reform of the eurozone is not better fiscal policy coordination or supervision. It is this: • Make sure that the financial sector can absorb a sovereign bankruptcy without a financial meltdown. This requires much tighter regulation, more effective supervision, continued access of banks to ECB refinancing in the event of a sovereign restructuring. For a transitional period, this also requires an ESM type 'rescue' institution. • The current fiscal reform package fails to deliver this.
