The paper discusses the measures taken by the EU in order to address the problems of the euro crisis. The focus is on the Stability and Growth Pact. Then, it explores the impact of these measures on EU internal market law, the European competition rules and the national welfare states. It is argued that a comprehensive EU approach to European economic law and the national welfare states is emerging.
