Not the best words

Headline on the European Union press release describing yesterday's heads of state/government summit --

Consensus on the need to establish a coordination and control system for the economy

If you're trying to choose between the view of the EU has a huge right-wing scheme to impose free market liberalism on all the countries or a huge left-wing scheme to impose socialism, the headline scores one for the latter.

One possibility is that it was not initially written in English.
