ABSTRACT
In this article the author comments on the announcement of the European Commission regarding the approval of the stimulus spending on Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T). He stresses that the Commission's response to the economic crisis was late because it came 11 months after the collapse of the Lehman Brothers Holding Inc. He mentions the construction budget and projects of the Commission, however, points out that it does not change the fact that it is doing too late.
