EU resilience

I think that the EU’s model is driven by the idea that in order for it to create a bigger resilience, it must not allow its smaller members to grow stronger. The whole is always stronger than the sum of its parts when the parts themselves are strong. Similarly, a chain is strong as its weakest link, that is the case with the EU. Limiting a member state’s ability to grow and prosper will eventually limit the European Union as a whole.
