    ECB seems to anticipate a European financial crisis
    The European Central Bank is seeking tougher penalties on Eurozone members that fail to carry out reforms to avoid another financial crisis. Below the surface, tension is rising between member states and the ECB over the plan and timing of a retreat from ultra-loose monetary policy.
