The European Union is doubling down on its commitment to block the launch of Facebook's Libra should it deem the project to present "Unmanageable or excessive risks." The news was reported by EU policy site EurActiv on Nov. 6.Libra's lack of clarity makes decision "Impossible". The document is an initial text prepared by Finland, which currently holds the six-month rotating presidency of the E.U.
Council. Currently, lack of clarity about Libra "Makes it impossible to reach definitive conclusions on whether and how the existing EU regulatory framework applies," it notes. "Are part of the logic of those who believe that there is a need for parallel markets, the disappearance of central banks The financial crisis ruined the reputation of governments and central banks, and some think we need other currencies, parallel circuits, non-hierarchical structures It is not by chance that libertarians are so attached to this vision." With its prospective billions of users, Libra "Would almost inevitably fracture the monetary system," he said, rendering central banks' policies ineffective.
Notably, the emergence of Libra has prompted the E.U's consideration of launching a potential bloc-wide central bank digital currency.
