In late May, as the European Commission prepared to impose sanctions on Beijing for its alleged dumping of cheap solar panels in EU markets, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang flew to Berlin to warn of a trade war that would hurt the German car industry. Telling the German public she would do all she could to stop a trade war that would damage German exports, she picked up the phone to Commission President Barroso in Brussels.
Several officials said that was then followed by a call from Barroso, a former prime minister of Portugal, to EU trade commissioner Karel De Gucht. The Belgian did not want to change course against China. Yet the message was clear. Europe stepped back from the De Gucht plans and the dispute was resolved by setting a minimum price on Chinese solar panels.
If Germans are pleased, among neighbors still wary after a century of viewing Berlin as a menace there is irritation at a tendency to talk down to those less economically successful. Some say that could backfire, creating resistance that might generate stalemate in EU policy-making. By taking this approach, Germany is putting the brakes on Europe.
It wants to have economic leadership and, in foreign policy, to be like Luxembourg. But that does not convince European Parliament member Nigel Farage. His UK Independence Party wants Britain, still outside the euro zone, to completely pull out of a European Union in which Farage sees economics ensuring Berlin will call the shots.
