As Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has acknowledged, crises in the EU have historically served as catalysts for further political integration. In the wake of the eurozone crisis, some European leaders have now called for the creation of an EU "economic government".  But will voters and taxpayers around Europe stomach another round of EU integration? Will governments accept further encroachments on national sovereignty? Are we witnessing the birth of a European superstate or an end to the dream of a federal Europe?
