The last chance to resolve the Euro-crisis, according to Le Monde, was the European Council/Euro Summit of 26 October 2011.

The text of the Summit Statement will appear on the website in the list of European Council Conclusions. In the Epilogue to "European Unification Into the Twenty-First Century" (to be published in December 2011) I shall briefly comment on the Statement.
Attached to this item is the English translation of the address of Pope Benedict XVI to the German Bundestag in Berlin on 22 September 2011 on the Foundations of Law. The address is most important. In its exceptional clarity, it is worth reading!
