The EU requirements for the state budget are defined so far in the Maastricht Treaty of 1992. Accordingly, the new debt of the Member States may be a maximum of three percent. The total holding load must be limited to 60 percent of economic performance.

"Do not do so as if nothing had happened"

, especially as a result of the financial and debt crisis from 2008, these values ​​were significantly exceeded by many countries. In the Corona crisis, the EU Commission has formally exposed to the rules to enable billions of help packages. It should be understood that soon to solid rules must be returned, Macron said. But you can not "do anything like that," and "return to a budgetary framework that was created at the beginning of the 1990s".

A softening of debt rules has long been demanded in particular of southern EU countries. Germany and countries like the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden, however, were strictly against it. In the German parties landscape, the long-term easing of debt rules is, in particular, for the FDP represented again in the Federal Government, a red cloth.
