BERLIN, Sept 1 German Finance Minister Wolfgang
Schaeuble said "too many" of his European Union colleagues
believed an investment shortfall in the region should be
corrected with public investments.
He was speaking at a conference also due to be addressed by
Pierre Moscovici, the former French finance minister likely to
be the new economic policy chief at the European Commission.
Moscovici has said it is crucial for Europe to refocus on
growth and jobs via higher investment, potentially putting him
at odds with Germany which remains focused on austerity.
