The last global financial crisis exposed a number of structural weaknesses of the eurozone which generated a great deal of additional costs as well as risks leading almost to its collapse. The creation of the Banking Union is hoped to strengthen the eurozone, however, it may not be enough, even when complemented with other reforms, to fully restore its effectiveness. Implementation of a common budget is necessary to enhance further integration of the euro area and to assure its financial stability. However, it seems that application of much less demanding tools of fiscal integration should be sufficient. A relatively small "insurance budget" would provide the definitive guarantee of bank deposits what would significantly reduce the risks for Poland when it joins the eurozone.
