The Swedish prime minister’s arguments against an EU-17 Eurogroup summit are irrelevant at best. The most relevant way to coordinate Ecofin decisions on withstanding the impact of debt contagion demands the holding of an EU-17 summit and policy commitments going forward.
Including non-euro members (e.g. the UK, Sweden and Denmark) would principally facilitate political stalemate and policy constraints.
If Sweden wants to be heard inside the EU-17, it should decide to join the euro now!
