Resumo

The global financial crisis revealed the weaknesses of the EU integration process, in general, and of the Eurozone, in particular. The EU institutions responded to the crisis in an inadequate way, in the belief that government debt stabilisation had to be pursued before the economy recovers. This strategy was based on economic forecasting errors, exposing member-states to the speculative behaviour of financial markets, leading to the bailout of countries such as Portugal, and undermining the confidence in the single currency, in the European economy and in the European project itself. We analyse here the crisis of the European Union (EU) in light of the bailout of Portugal, and propose an alternative strategy for Portugal and the EU, drawing upon Amartya Sen's capability approach.
