EU Ministers Moving Toward Bank Bailouts Deal

How to deal with failing banks

|

European finance ministers on Tuesday took one step further in finalizing an agreement on a joint mechanism to deal with failing banks, despite visible divisions among member countries over the key measures of the plan.

Though the ministers failed to arrive at a precise agreement on Tuesday's meeting, they appeared keen to finalize the banking resolution plan before the EU leaders meeting on December 19-20.
