We took leave of the first and the second Single Market Act, and the second Barroso Commission, through the blog posts Tracing Single Market Act proposals and Latest Single Market Act blog entries . Still interested in improvement and governance of the internal market, in the entries Single Market integration 2013 report and Second Single Market integration report 2014 we saw that the Council and the European Parliament welcomed the integration reports, while calling for improvements. The...

Legal, political and economic scholars have encountered difficulties, when dealing with the treaty based aim of the European Union as a highly competitive social market economy. Negative integration in order to remove or to lessen obstacles in the internal market and external trade can be promoted by harmonisation and the Court of Justice of the European Union, flanked by rules to ensure fair competition. However, despite the kind words the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)...

F-Secure: News from the Lab -

Posted by FSLabs @ 02:31 GMT When hackers get hacked, that's when secrets are uncovered. On July 5th, Italian-based surveillance technology company Hacking Team was hacked . The hackers released a 400GB torrent file with internal documents, source code, and emails to the public - including the company's client list of close to 60 customers. The list included countries such as Sudan, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia - despite official company denials of doing business with oppressive regimes. The...

Trying to understand the European Union objective of a highly competitive market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress, it feels natural to take a look at the existing body of EU law ( acquis ) in the area of social policy . The Commission staff working document (SWD) accompanying the communication on launching the consultation on a European pillar of social rights COM(2016) 127 final and the first preliminary outline of the pillar COM(2016) 127 final ANNEX 1 provides and...

Since we are trying to understand the European Union objective of a highly competitive market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress, it feels natural to take a look at the thinking behind a European pillar of social rights. Together with the communication launching the consultation on a European pillar of social rights COM(2016) 127 final and the first preliminary outline of the pillar COM(2016) 127 final ANNEX 1 , the European Commission published a Commission staff working...

On 16 February 2017 the European Parliament adopted three resolutions about the future of Europe . Bresso and Brok The report by Mercedes Bresso and Elmar Brok for the Committee on Constitutional Affairs (AFCO), procedure 2014/2249(INI) , about exploiting the possibilities within the existing treaties, led to the European Parliament resolution of 16 February 2017 on improving the functioning of the European Union building on the potential of the Lisbon Treaty P8_TA-PROV(2017)0049 , which I...

We are on the reform trail. The free movement of goods, persons, services and capital and the comprehensive prohibition of all discrimination on grounds of nationality, are means to achieve a highly competitive social market economy. The internal market, which now consists of 31 countries with a total population of 515 million, is often (aspirationally) called the single market. When we want to study the development of the internal market during this decade, the obvious time to start is Europe...

Poker Wits -

Rake. Something no Poker Player can avoid, at least when playing for real money and playing at non-home game. So it is in order you know all about it, if you don't already. Rakeback is the opportunity so many decide not to tell new players. Instead these people and sites go for personal gain and leave the innocent new player unaware he/she has just lost thousands of dollars of potential gain over time. Unfortunately, the same goes for the "refer-a-friend" services which don't do you or your...

(CNN)Everyone exposed to formaldehyde in some laminate flooring could experience adverse health effects, according to a revised report issued by several government agencies. The revised report, released Tuesday, also found lifetime cancer risk from the flooring to be higher than identified in the original version of the report. "The American Cancer Society estimates that up to 50,000 of every 100,000 people may develop cancer from all causes over their lifetimes," the CDC said. The original...

The United Kingdom used to project itself as a champion of the EU single market, but if you take a closer look, you are about to detect a paradox.    If you compare what the European Parliament said in May 2010 about lowering and eliminating barriers in the internal market, with what the UK prime minister Theresa May said on 17 January 2017 about her government’s priorities to create new obstacles to the four freedoms of movement, depriving British and other EU citizens of rights, it offers...

It has been a very long time since my last post; I have spent relatively little of it in the workshop, other than to make some scabbards, but a while back my friend Heli asked me to make a meditation stool for her. I jumped at it as a cast-iron excuse to potter about with chisels and planes. Once we had discussed the basic idea, I made a quick maquette, nailed together from bits of pine. The maquette was too ugly to photograph, but did its job; my friend made suggestions about the pitch, and...

In the Bratislava Roadmap the heads of state or government declared their determination to make a success of the EU at 27. The leaders promised to use the 25 March 2017 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties to round off the process and to set out orientations for their common future together. Having seen the auspices, the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker made a sober assessment. Instead of reform proposals, the Commission published a discussion...

One day before the EU27 Rome declaration I want to start this blog post by quoting two paragraphs from the 2012 Single Market Act II communication spelling out why even the incomplete European Union we have is better than secession for increasingly mobile people and businesses (page 9): The mobility of citizens and businesses is at the heart of European integration and the Single Market. The Commission will continue to work towards its vision of a Single Market where citizens, workers and...

In the communication Better governance for the Single Market; Brussels, 8.6.2012 COM(2012) 259 final ; the European Commission promised (page 5) an Annual Report on Single Market integration as part of the Annual Growth Survey, to be discussed by the Council and the European Parliament and be endorsed by the Spring European Council. The Annual report would contribute to the definition of country-specific recommendations, which would be based on a more in-depth analysis of performance in each...

The second Annual Growth Survey (AGS) related report on the state of single market integration, for 2014, came under a slightly different name than the first one, presented in the blog post Single Market integration 2013 report : A Single Market for Growth and Jobs: an analysis of progress made and remaining obstacles in the member states - Contribution to the Annual Growth Survey 2014; Brussels, 13.11.2013 COM(2013) 785 final (24 pages)    The Commission started by underlining the need for...

The Single Market Act II had been anticipated by the European Parliament, the European Council and the Council (of ministers) of the EU.

I remember a time, when the General Report of the European Union was a reference tool of more than 600 pages, with exact information about procedures and acts adopted. I used to think that the General Report was a useful tool for students, teachers, researchers, civil servants, journalists, NGO and business people, as a well documented recap of recent developments in a certain policy area, before catching up on the latest events. The European Commission later discontinued the Monthly Bulletin...

Vasemmistoliitto oli joka vaiheessa innokkaana kannattamassa tuhokapitalismin ratkaisuja Kreikan vangitsemiseksi - ettei Kreikka vain eroaisi eurosta ja ryhtyisi itsenäiseksi.   Vihreät ja vasemmistoliitto esiintyvät nuorten ja eettisten ihmisten toivona mutta ovat kuitenkin kaiken nykyisen kaaoksen tuhovoiman ja sotatalouden selkeitä tukijoita. He kannattavat tuhokapitalismia ja korruptiota  eli EU:ta ja euroa, joka on Wall streetin ja Lontoon sotatalouden pankkiirien suunnittelema...
