A French banker, who has been active in the movement for European integration, advocates more extensive measures for the creation of a common market. The main need, in his opinion, is for a single currency standard as the only means of securing a true liberalization of exchanges and harmonization of national policies. While supporting the Coal and Steel Community, he disapproves of some of the controls over industry that it entails and does not favor additional integration by sectors. He also supports military and political integration.
