Dec 11th According to an interview today, Sunday with Dutch finance minister De Jager rules have now to be changed in the way that:

National parliaments must provide numbers of future budgets to European commission where they will be checked. And if they are over the predefined limit automatic sanctions will be imposed UNLESS some 85% of EZ member votes stop those.

30 new laws on bank recap and enhanced regulation were announced.

He didn't elaborate much on the growth part of the "big summit" ...only that he referred to the Eurozone plus package.

Dec 13th Dutch central planning agency: Netherlands in recession now. GDP will shrink 0,5% in 2012. Budget deficit will reach 4,1%, unemployment will rise (link in dutch)
