Overall, “it’s a very balanced, very smart, very stable package that serves to keep prices low and tolerable as long as these challenges exist,” Scholz added.

Should the EU borrow together?

When asked about joint borrowing at EU level during the crisis, Scholz pointed out that most of the money from the Corona restructuring fund has not yet been spent. “Most of the funds have not been used to date, but will be spent gradually over the next few years,” Scholz said.

Therefore, we are in the special situation where we set up a restructuring fund that was effective in the crisis.

“There are Member States that do not have the same budget as Germany,” says the text. For this reason, the commission members warned about the deterioration of competition in the domestic market. “We must consider common European means to prevent the different leeway that states have in their national budgets from causing internal distortions,” they wrote.
