EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - Eurozone economic policies should only be conducted in "dark secret rooms", to prevent dangerous movements in financial markets, the Eurogroup chief said on Wednesday (20 April), adding that he had often lied in his career to prevent the spread of rumours that could feed speculation.
As exists in the case of monetary policy, all economic decisions should now be discussed behind closed doors, he said
Under his line of reasoning, ministers and EU leaders who discuss financial matters in public put "millions of people at risk" due to wild swings in financial markets produced by their public commentary.
"I am for secret, dark debates," he quipped.
wow, an honest politician?
