Re: serious whispers

As the Euro is the second largest reserve currency in the world, after the US Dollar, I can't see it ceasing to exist.
Actually the Euro has strengthened against the Pound over the past few days.

Ref: O/P it's not April the first is it?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I don't see the Euro disappearing but I think it will be under pressure during 2011 and may have to be realigned. There are some weak countries in the EU and further bailouts are inevitable.

Re: serious whispers

I wouldn't argue about more bailouts this year.
Just watched Euronews on Freesat and Estonia is due to join Euro today so it's still expanding.

Re: serious whispers

Whilst I can't see the Euro being scrapped something must give as the stronger countries like Germany will get fed up of supporting some of the other countries up to their eyes in Debt.

I think Estonia has been told to get its house in order before becoming full members. 
You can bet that when they join they won't be contributing to the EU but taking from it.  Too many countries now take out of the pot leaving the stronger ones like the UK, Germany and France to carry them and this can't go on.

Re: serious whispers

This whole situation only goes to prove that money doesn't work.
It sits at the top of any society with the rich and powerful who then begrudge helping out the poor who actually need it and spend it (thus being the engine which keeps the economy moving in the first place).
The poor are normally born into poverty and cannot escape it. The rich will then treat them like a pain and a burden on society because they have to 'support' them - despite holding onto as much money as possible due to their own greed and the poor are still in essence treated like a slave society.
One thing I've noticed over the years and through many jobs is that the higher the pay, the less effort and work that seems to be expected. The lower the pay the harder you have to work and the more demands the employer will put on the employee who then goes home with a pittance and has to pay exorbitant costs of living.
I have no problem with the EU bailing out Estonia as long as its not going to make their debt worse and even more unaffordable due to interest etc. It seems that while we here in the UK do have a rough deal from our government and political leaders, we certainly don't have it as bad as some of the poorest nations some of which struggle to afford a loaf of bread thanks to the greed of the west.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
