EU Treaty Change Needed to Address Troika Controversy

EU treaty change needed to address Troika controversy
The EU needs to change its governing treaty to tackle economic crisis in a more balanced way, promoting growth while enforcing fiscal responsibility, says Parliament Vice President Othmar Karas.

Karas is part of parliament fact-finding missions that began in Portugal and continue this week in Cyprus and Greece before going on to Ireland. Available material includes an edited package.
