This is the reason why Eurobonds—an expression commonly and loosely used to refer to the full mutualization of existing national debt, to be replaced by European debt—have never been the silver bullet that some, in particular in France or Italy, make them to be.
The assumption of state debt was a means to a higher political objective—namely the kernel of a U. This came a long 13 years after independence, during which the nascent republic had been ruled by the ineffective Articles of Confederacy.
Even though state debts had been run up in the fight for independence, Hamilton needed a grand bargain with southerners to get it through Congress.
Even then it passed by a single vote. The American monetary union and its financial architecture came second. It was unified much later, after two wound-up national banks, when it was brought under the control of a federal institution with the creation of the Federal Reserve System in and its expansion and centralization by President Franklin D.
Roosevelt in the s through the deposit insurance the FDIC and the Federal Reserve Act. Without the Hamiltonian moment in and the Rooseveltian moment in the s, the United States could well have unraveled, as many in the United Kingdom predicted in the s.
They eventually reinvigorated the no-bailout clause when the central government did not intervene on behalf of states, letting them default.
But it was only because the clause was complemented by a strong federal government under Roosevelt that the United States proved capable of backstopping its financial system during the Depression, stabilizing the economy and limiting the consequences of disparate levels of domestic development.
This long journey is not unique to the United States. Indeed, all federations have faced it—and some have not survived.
It is difficult to agree on the right balance between state and federal expenditure, and to arrange institutions accordingly. Yet it has not worked according to plan.
The complicated negotiations around modifications of the mechanism that organizes income-equalizing transfers between the regional government and the federal government — Länderfinanzausgleich —proves that these matters remain sensitive because they touch the heart of politics, even inside successful, unified federations like Germany.
If anything, both the American and German experiences suggest that only a central budget with spending and borrowing capabilities allowing transfers and stabilization makes a union economically durable, while market discipline at the local level makes it politically acceptable.
Switzerland provides another enlightening precedent. Its individual cantons, which make up the confederation, regularly renew their commitments to fund a federal administration.
To keep up with the times and the modern requirements of statehood, the central government in Bern has grown from approximately three percent of GDP to approximately 12 percent in the last three decades.
Sovereignty remains indisputably at the canton level, but they come together to fund those activities that are best performed at the national level, including counter-cyclical spending.

This is ludicrous. There are only affected people.
