GREENE: OK, this is something that's been called a big step towards resolving Europe's debt crisis.

Today, the German finance minister said a new system will be up and running by the spring of 2014. It will give the European Central Bank power to oversee the EU's big banks and step in whenever there are signs of trouble. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
