The Netherlands and Germany have “strong objections” to the creation of “euro bonds” according to Ditch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager. Speaking to reporters after a meeting of finance ministers in Brussels, the lawmaker said that such bonds would not be helpful to the European Union. He also said that Germany was in agreement. The comments resurrect an old theme in the euro zone, which appeared to have been shot down months ago when some leaders thought about issuing European Union bonds as a means of raising capital for governments. Apparently this idea does not appear to those nations whose borrowing costs are already relatively low in the euro zone. If such bonds are issued, however, it should put more pressure on the euro.
