You are posting about some interesting news.
I don’t usually take sides in these sorts of economic debates. It seems that every position has an equally plausible and logical counter position. But I am interested in how this experiment of different governments with the same currency works out.
I am also interested in the upcoming negotiations between Greece and the EU. [Popcorn in hand.]
In my oppinion a single currency virtually exists where free trade agreements are in place, nevertheless, the euro’s viability is dictated by a political union which in reality works only if sustained by a dictatorial, draconian socio-political dictatorship. But since independent democracies like the EU members will never succumb to any such attempts, especially when they come from a country like Germany, with a well known, dubious attitude towards leadership. They may act like accepting it for a while, but when statistics start showing the real problems and the whipping begins, it all starts falling appart. The euro is a Utopian dream, sustainable only by a dystopian practice, no one will ever willingly accept.
I’ve prepared my popcorn too…
