In this Commentary, CEPS Senior Fellow Jacques Pelkmans is mystified to explain why Mario Monti’s recent report, A new strategy for the single market, has not provoked much reaction, neither among stakeholders in the ‘Brussels circuit’ nor in the member states. In his view, the report should have stimulated lively debate on its highly strategic reflections and active discussions and positioning on the numerous concrete proposals. In the hope of sparking just such a debate, Pelkmans briefly sets out the main lines of the Monti report and calls attention to its most critical aspects.
