German Minister Schaeuble Declines to Rule Out EFSF Leveraging

September 29, 2011

“What the future brings no one can say,” Schaeuble said on German radio today, when asked about leveraging the fund. Any expansion would have to be approved by the Bundestag, and without its backing “nothing at all” will happen, he said.
