O. Pesce: A PROPOSAL FOR EUROPE
Several of the provisions and fundamental principles of the European Union are still unrealized but need to be put into effect if the EU is to have a positive, more creative and prosperous future. Restrictive norms have been strictly adhered to and enforced by the most powerful political forces, despite the fact that such policies have caused the damages that we all can see. By contrast, more positive alternative polices have been neglected.
Yet it is precisely these more positive policies which most faithfully reflect the real objectives and constitute the real foundation of the various Union Treaties and laws. Restrictive norms, necessary as they may appear, take on a wholly improper character when they block the Union’s fundamental objective of fostering growth and employment.
