Assessing the European Banking Sector Bailout Plans

These bailout plans pose problems for the European Union, founded as it is on the  resumption of market competition not distorted by intervention on the part of its member states. So, even in emergencies, the transactions realised as part of these bailout plans must, to conform to market principles and the European Commission directives on competition, be realised at market prices. In other words, support is permissible, but subsidies are not.
