George Calhoun contributes another article to Forbes’ series of posts dealing with the impact and implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for the Financial world.
As a continuation of his series on COVID-19 and its implications on the world, George Calhoun writes about how the virus is affecting the EU’s federal structure. The pandemic has caused the EU to rethink their public policy and continental governance, allowing for a more “robust federal model”. Several countries are approaching previous social and financial ideologies in a different way. Calhoun describes several examples of these changes, with Germany changing its current fiscal policy and turning towards a more modern model. Old ways of thinking about how the EU should operate are sloughing, and new initiatives are forming. The EU is proving that they can be more than a group of nation states, and finally establishing their own federal identity.
