The President Of The EU Commission Just Laid Out His BIG Vision For A United States Of Europe

Jose Manuel Barroso

Jose Manuel Barroso — the President of the EU Commission — just gave out what sounds like a fascinating speech at Princeton.

Economics writer Evan Soltas tweeted out the key vision…

Some tweets:

I think @BarrosoEU just called for multilateral military intervention in Syria.

Europe needs full banking union and fiscal integration, @BarrosoEU says.

It is time for a federal European “democracy,” @BarrosoEU says.

The case for a united army under EU control is growing stronger, @BarrosoEU says.

EU needs some level of regulatory synchronisation and federalization of reg. power, @BarrosoEU says.

Shorter @BarrosoEU at Princeton today: I want a United States of Europe.

@GMRobertson @BarrosoEU explicitly said he wants a federation, and a federal democracy

We’re looking forward to reading more from the speech, but the big point is clear that the European project is far from over.
