we focus on europe and the economic and political tangle that it's finding itself in. professor snyder thank you very much for joining us we're going to be talking about the e.u. but what a mess it all seems to be in what's happened to it appears on your the e.u. has become and bureaucratic system that we call a super national confederation of states between the legal point of view it has this tendency to turn into a federal state and says one of its sensual problems is not just an alliance of states anymore but a federation without legitimate basis it has new nation new european nation but nation's political relations within the union yet less democratic all the time in this situation we're losing what we call illegal state which is of the highest priority the euro two seem to be in big trouble what's going to happen to it. the euro will inevitably fail it was always clear that the euro project would not
succeed already in one thousand nine hundred three i have processed the mass root lawsuit that was mostly against the introduction of the monetary union without the consent of the nations comprising the e.u. this euro is being used as a political lever to make the e.u. a super state that for example goes against russia in at the same time suse is a counterbalance against china the usa and other economic giants but this lever was always economically doomed to failure. the eurozone is comprised of very different here or genius economies they can hardly be an up to mouth piece for a common currency a combination of internal market with common currency requires member states to do revaluation and devaluation of their currencies taking into account different levers of productivity and efficiency of their economies we can member states are not competitive in bailouts cannot help here as we see now a common currency can be introduced only when the member states economies are
convergent and have similar levels of productivity and that is not the case it is a long way before we can possibly reach it the worst thing here is that a common currency is counterproductive it hinders the aims of economic development we still hold on to the euro because we want to make a superstate out of the e.u. so it's again the subject of bailouts is also causing a lot of controversy particularly here in germany because they are having to foot most of the bills what's going to happen there. in the beardy we have never witnessed a situation when the law is not respected as we seek now in the rescue time or they simply say that there is no other alternative but to sometimes neglect in provisions of the treaties in their constitution otherwise the road crash or the euro is really of no they are you it is only an instrument and nothing more nobody needs this e.u. which became a bureaucratic dictatorship we should have an association of european states and
nations we should be capable of admitting the russian federation a highly important european state but it is at this moment in today's form absolutely impossible the e.u. was born in the terms of cold war it was meant to be against the soviet union the e.u. wants to be a super state politically but it will feel economically what caused this current financial crisis in the year that the euro has contributed but also they did collection policy which has other causes but the debt existed long. before from the time of the reunification with germany where the south european countries that are in trouble now where those they could boost their loan debt because of two favorable and subsidized interest rates they live beyond their means just think about it since the introduction of the euro the salaries of clerks in state officials rose in greece at seventy six percent in germany at the same time zero point nine percent in wages in germany rose at five point eight percent in greece at forty two this is all from credit the easing of the credit terms the holding of
the interest rate is a full cent in itself is a mean reason for the debt how much to the countries of europe actually need a single currency at the swap it is not needed at all vice versa herm's you are only homogeneous economies can manage a common currency in europe it would be only germany the netherlands this canadian countries would also be suitable but not france because its economy has completely different productivity everybody knows that it took the usa more than one hundred twenty years before it introduced the common dollar it happened after world war one is shifting to the common currency change the political circumstances completely and this process is also hurtful in a social sense because it is mostly the poorest people who suffer from it is the introduction of a common currency at least inflation in we can hardly think that it leads to deflation the only way to handle a situation is to convey in money to a form that will at least harm the donor countries but also others it also means
that the wealth of the people will be eaten away how much would you say the benefits of the euro outweigh its costs at all in the current economic situation the only advantage of the euro is that we do not have to change your money trail to france or greece but money change means only in significant costs compared to the costs that the euro has caused according to fundamental estimates the euro cost germany about ten percent of g.d.p. per year these are all nontransparent transfer operations. are being done in the whole system of european issuing banks germany also has their own interest rate it should have had another rate according to the product to be of its economy interest and savings should have been two to three percent higher no depositors save almost nothing with a current zero point three five percent saving rate it means huge losses for the population there is not a lot of publicity about it because it is not a common practice to talk about it on t.v. in t.v. itself news too little about it and doesn't want people to be disturbed it is not
good for a day version economic space to build a monetary union it is though a very good for big companies financial enterprises to begin with that make a huge profit out of the manager union. with increased border tensions because of immigration there's even talk that shange going on the idea of a borderless europe might be under threat how likely is it that chang and might actually collapse. the economic policy in many free policy on one side in policy or freedom of movement are completely different things i am myself a supporter of freedom of movement but it doesn't mean on any account there must be a common currency see if the interests are in no way tryst now and there is no need to introduce a border control with the borders of the e.u. are different story without than europe would be overrun i consider the steps of the danish government as not necessary and. multiculturalism has failed european leaders say but what are the actual consequences of that failure. if we
multiculturalism even people from southern europe germany northern europe hungry poland russia or european nations living together they know it has not failed there is no problem at all the problem is with the muslims it's not people who constitute the problem but is land in your lamp comes with modern people to build active groups to promote islam in educate the establishment of sheria law and sharia law particularly is criminal section is absolutely impossible for european relationships we have in religious pluralism europe interesting. religion is done and islam is the religion that tolerate another religion as long as it has no power and securitization was the biggest political event for europe it meant that state and church were divided in no one is entitled to impose its religion and determined against any tolerance of sharia law but it has nothing to do with elevating muslim people. and further on how do we fix multiculturalism or what do we replace it with . if we can an inflated can do it in association of all muslims which is very
powerful in a several centuries in saudi arabia egypt in our in the in syria law in the believe that all political systems must be theocratic and it is up to muslims to change it german efforts to influence them would not yield any results in will not help to impose securitization which is intolerable who knows but one of the fundamental principles of our constitution is securitization catalyses and has of course a lot of influence but it has no political power. the has grown into a vast and expensive structure but now costs cutting what do you think that brussels could do more efficiently what could it get rid of. i would even see bluntly the best step would be to abolish the brussels bureaucracy altogether usually even better if parliaments of the member states would make laws which would be adopted in all countries afterwards there would be called a common law and would be more democratic than what we have now the politicians in parliament no longer know what they decide upon their laws are being prepared in
brussels and local politicians are not even capable of seeing them through because you have to have a specific knowledge of european law in order to understand what it all means you have to have intimate knowledge of europe its jurisdiction is an order to know what everything means i don't know of any m.p.'s in your me who would have any knowledge of european law and could get as it is actually passed in european like same with me now i know your euro skeptic but if you have to defend the e.u. what would you say that its brought its good to you or the as a friend and here you mention fear of it into my mind it is a legal obligation for the european nations should work together on a contractual basis and a great fan of kant who once said that nations should live under treaties which have to be followed treaties constitute the best possible way to secure peace but to develop. of contractual relations should not lead to a situation when we lose his achievements of enlightenment as democracy illegal in social state and the result freedom of democracy in the legal state and more
essential principles in european integration that we have a large struggle between these two poles i doubt that europe could ever be democratic as a super state with a federally of organisation and if a relation of more than one billion people. can constitute democracy just federalism in germany units can be democratic otherwise the co-operation of citizens has no chance of getting a lot of see the consciousness of people it is called individualization but in truth it is isolation be feeling more influence in policies and lastly i'd like to ask you for a prediction what do you think the e.u. is going to look like in the year twenty fifteen and they get this just like. there are a lot of terrible scenarios of course and optimistic and that's why i am advocating irrationally you have policy i think they need ventures with the euro and the european superstate will come to an end the dream of those politicians who look forward to integration will also come to an end they say that in the year two thousand and fifty europe will be
a europe of the god. whole dig down. the european states in a contractual basis with cultural unity and they were in my opinion we should also be close economically but in a free manner we can also happen that economically close development would initially lead to the monetary union but it is soon great changes of mentality and culture of south european issues and there is nothing more difficult to change in culture professor thank you very much. sure is that so much that there is i mean if you have a real. time to write future for the euro as a single currency. from one crisis to the next europe's politicians appear to be powerless in the face of a. few. is

a clash of violent knowing they were up against a side but hadn't conceded a goal in the last six matches however the home team went out to a night run and andrea sharma in one close here only to beat annoyed by a smart start by that is to keep push a given given who is a dive for the match but once again for the home team as he flung himself to his right to the eagle some sure of what would have been his second goal in four days for his country however when the irish people is finally beaten he had richard dunne to frank next a moot point because the count's men saw the ball fall to some shoulder notions of space however the dinar mosco midfield as effort was brilliantly stopped on the line by the aston villa central defender and somehow the visitors went into the half time break goalless just by the russians playing thirteen shots on goal to islands one russia continue to dominate after the resumption andrea shoving was once again excellent for the home side though he was house enormously above the
orisha fences reluctance to closing down yourself or would find some shot again whether thirty three year old elected to pass to roman publishing co when trying to get a shot on target would surely have been the better option with time running out of the russians for everything at a resolute irish defense just two minutes from time concern seems the owner of what he'd wanted for dick of the count's men but given was once again in the right place of the right time to deny the zenith field of with his legs to russia had to settle for points out of the car said his side's paul finishing rather than ireland's resolute defending was the main reason his team failed to get a much needed when. players. who do feel the score again was all respect you know when you play against ireland they will work and do everything that even when the game the first game day we played tonight not even much better than the first game and if you can do that against
a team like ireland. to give a little confidence an excellent result for ireland you stay well in contention to try and clarify what to magically for next year's european championships giovanni trapattoni was full of praise for his saw it in the place that's your own little germination there placation of the players especially the senior players like done and given them a good it was actually this gave the younger members of our squad so much inspiration this helped us get what i believe is a golden point to russia missed a golden opportunity to extend their lead of the top of group b. and bell now face a crucial encounter in bratislava next on a sudden fall show but. moscow. well in the meantime group three was blown wide open by armenia standing for no winners laraque here the victory pole the armenians level with the slovaks and the place one point zero interest on a trip to the island was the only one one military wasn't until right in the other
group match so it's going to permit three games that play russia are talking seventeen points to ahead of violence the next day or two on dora on media wise two thirds of all places macedonia next fall slovakia slipped two places to fourth and next close neighbors russia trick played less daunting to take out because when that surprise i would equate to armenia. so everything to fight for in group gave the reigning world and european champions spain know what he threw them to the bus case then clinching top spot and going all in a comprehensive six no one time to his lips and shine out of the day though and that having a place in each and scotland move to within two points of the second by czech republic despite missing a penalty in the first steven naismith struck early in the second it was a narrow one zero victory at home to the way here. and elsewhere four time world champion italy also qualify for the finals they are unassailable at the top of say ok edging slovenia one nil in florence and eighty fifth minute goal by substitute.

today we're going to work and we managed to save the training camps for pentathlon after the soviet union collapsed we've invested one and a half million dollars in developing this campaign and now it's one of the best in the world so we've also got a powerful squad the problem is that only choice of our athletes can compete to be lympics so we have very tight competition in the national team. and three years ago the russian team also acquired an unexpected reinforcement nowadays it's quite common for athletes to change their citizenship in order to get into brits unity to take part in big competitions but alexander listen story is something completely different the twenty three year old was born in belarus and got into sport by learning to swim when he was six but at the age of twenty one his life took a sudden change borderless that's the word assist a lot of the people in the bellerose team coaches felt with my former coach and the
national coach wanted to get rid of me so he made up a fake diagnosis of heart disease and told me i was unsuitable for professional sport but there was a whole thing to him and i was that i quit sports and got a job this is going to get out however luckily russia's coach aleksey how plan of invited me to their training in canada more than that and made several examinations that prove i'm fully fit to compete so i sit here in russia and fortunately listen got back into. spork less than a year after he had quit and since then he has won the russian championship twice was a runner up at the world championship last year and tops the world rankings this season and the belorussian leads a very strong team that includes two world champions for elephants are going to make him and double olympic champion and dreamy see if it is. i worried so much when i got back to training alex a two time olympic champion i've seen my save and wondered how can i become such a legendary athlete the level seem to be unreachable for me but i started to train
