The real scandal is financial regulation. European banking officials who bought AAA rated assets didn't do anything non-conservative. It was regulatory failure on the US side and expansive monetary policy that caused the housing bubble and the European economy paid the price. How on earth would our EU officials propose that we should approximate our financial regulation with the ones of the United States? Didn't we learn the lesson from Commissioner McCreevy's naive approach?


We don´t need TTIP! Citizens must have enviromental conservation, consumer protection - and democracy!!!
