    Abstract

    This Commentary identifies several key weaknesses and oversights implicit in the proposals on the table at the October 2010 European Council summit to discipline EU member states whose governments exceed EU deficit or debt limits. As a more effective alternative, the author proposes enlisting the power of opposition parties and the bond markets curb such excesses.
