Ramanan — Is Intra-Eurosystem Debt Unconstitutional?

There’s an interesting conversation between JKH and Marshall Auerback here on the constitutionality of TARGET2 balances of the NCBs of the Euro Area.
Read it at The Case for Concerted Action
Is Intra-Eurosystem Debt Unconstitutional?
by Ramanan

JKH's back ground is in finance. Marshall has a law degree and he is a global investment manager.

Having said that the Eurozone rules are more like the 'Pirate Code' from the Pirates of the Caribbean.

Not so much rules as guidelines.

There is no law without enforcement. It's all down to who can say no, and whether they can make that decision stick.

Agree. Thanks for posting, R. I had imagined him looking older.

No fist fights or fencing!

I confirmed with him what Wikipedia says about him - he has represented Canada in Olympics in Fencing.
