The European Union – Is the economic euphoria justified?While the UK voted to exit the EU, Eurosceptic and populist voices are getting stronger. Whilst the threat of the unsolved refugee crisis from the East is being downplayed (in the midst of echoes of daily provocations from a bullying Turkey), terror attacks in Europe are on the rise.

As the Union has not yet convinced that the Eurozone can efficiently function without threatening the EU’s own existence, totalitarian and undemocratic austerity policies do not only suffocate the EU’s economic growth but tear the European society apart, nurturing discord instead of solidarity, and disintegration. As the more-integration-no-matter-what-the-consequences-doctrine continues, the European Union seems to only act after an agreement to solve a conflict or after a crisis has already been adopted by the conflicting parties. All of these and more while the President of the European Commission announces that the Union is on the right path. But is it?
