Jeffrey Gordon, Georg Ringe, 17 July 2015

The Greek Crisis is a crisis rather than a problem due to the vulnerability of Greek banks.

A full banking union requires joint banking supervision, joint bank resolution, and joint deposit insurance. The EZ only has the first so far. Completing the banking union must be part of any long-term solution.
