After the 2008 crisis, the European Central Bank has played a new role, cause of the absence of a unitary economic government, The shock due to virus Covid-19 has determined a change in the approach of European competition law: a new European temporary framework for state aid has been adopted. It has opened up more possibilities for public powers. The constraints of the fiscal compact have been suspended: it allows for greater spending possibilities but implies a more consistent public debt. In this context, it‘s central to reflect on social rights, which constitute a fundamental part of the Economic Constitution and a factor in wealth redistribution. New rights appear, first of all, the right to housing, on which there is a rich jurisprudence of the constitutional courts of member States.
