Establishing monetary policies across different countries is stupid. If one country is struggling it drags all of them down.

Well true, but I like the general idea of it. But hey that is just my opinion.

Not to mention that the EU places strict policies on what is required to be in the E.U. It can come in conflict with a countries traditions etc..

Ya, I don't like the EU. It's a good concept of unifying Europe, but Europe is vastly diverse, and expecting it to become a melting pot like America is impossible. From a fiscal standpoint, its just so dumb...

If a few reforms are put in place, the EU could become an entity that rivals even the US. One of the main problems with the basic organization as a whole is that they inhabit that grey limbo area between Federalism and a Confederacy. They tried to get the benefits of both systems by choosing a relatively middle ground, but they ended up getting more of the weaknesses of both instead. They either need to increase federal control and become a Federation like the US, or loosen existing policy and become a Confederacy. Both options would make the EU far more effective than the giant mess that it is now.

@58539672 The problem is that Europe is far more diverse than the USA is. If anything is holding back the EU from becoming a superpower, it's the large cultural diversity between European countries.

The E.U was a stupid idea from the start. Because Greece was stupid, and decided to host the Olympics, even though it was in bad shape, it's recession has effected everybody.
