Da li postoji adekvatan izraz na sh?


There is another aspect of the monetary union's functioning which should provide food for thought. Some countries behave, in effect, like freeloaders, counting on easy financing of their deficits without being able, seemingly, to put their public budgets in good order. It is taboo in Brussels and Frankfurt to question the viability of the monetary union -- and this is understandable; for the Euro is as much a political construct as an economic one. Nevertheless, too many freeloaders could lead to a situation where the benefits of being in the eurozone could be outrun by costs. A one-size-fits-all monetary policy would be increasingly unwelcome under such conditions.
