Yglesias on the EU

Matt Yglesias has a nice analogy:

The Eurozone has created a kind of governance version of a collateralized debt obligation. Sovereignty has been pooled, and then tranched, and then re-allocated. Each government has some authority over the economic outcomes in all the different countries, but by the same token has only partial authority over its own economy.
