The committee praised the 27-nation EU for rebuilding after World War Two and for its role in spreading stability to former communist countries after the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall.

    AT $1.2 million for 500 million EU residents, each person can expect to get 1/5 of a cent. Awesome! That will cure the 'austerity'.
