SE Times - “Romanian President Traian Basescu pleaded last week in favour of a stronger Europe, capable of facing growing competition. "The globalisation process is showing us how small we are compared to the capital, the markets," Basescu said to young Romanians living in the diaspora. "It is proven governments can be defeated by markets. The global system will sweep anything which lacks force because the capital is no longer in the possession of states. This is why I said it is necessary, in two or three years, to create the United States of Europe," he added.”
