Germany Labor Minister Favors ‘United Europe,’ Spiegel Reports

Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Germany Labor Minister Ursula von der Leyen is in favor of a “United States of Europe,” Der Spiegel reported, citing an interview.

Von der Leyen said Europe should follow the model of the federal states of Switzerland, Germany or the United States, the magazine cited her as saying in the e-mailed preview of an article that will appear in this week’s edition.

She said the states should take advantage of Europe’s size in the matters of finance, taxes and economic issues, the magazine reported.
