    What are your thoughts? Have you seen the news about the subject?

    Do you think we have a chance or are we screwed?

    My mother hasn't been paid the last 4 months. I spend about 75% less money.
    I would like to listen anyone's opinions.

    They never stopped demonstrations and that is a way to force those there do something or even more finance from IMF or EU Bank. Ah why did I need to finish a degree in EU studies, when EU may collapse lol xD. No not really but I dont think monetary union is good... sure there are benefits but if these are the disadvantahes, screw single currency.

    To have the same currency in two countries means to have an equal economic power in both countries. Because otherwise in one country everything might be good, while the other will not be able to sustain the new range of prices and salaries because of the lower economy.

    It's not the same as in the US.... in the US their government gives money to the state of Florida for example, then Florida uses the money how they want, and the US government recuperate the money back through taxes.

    However in Europe even if the system is similar.... EU currently is way larger then the US so there is much more areas to cover... and what in US are states... in the EU are countries... and what in US are state borderlines... in the EU they are country borderlines which serve no aditional pourpose then to slow down the traffic. Besides if in the US one state goes bankrupt for example, they easily change the leadership over there to what the government needs. But if a country in the EU goes bankrupt... you can't change anything there that easily.

    So all in all, Greece will fail as long as the Euro will be there, and the countries with a lesser economy such as Greece, Bulgary, Romania... should never adhere to the Euro.

    your informed wrong here, it just changed from 1euro=1,5franken to 1euro=1,2franken which is worse for swiss economy then any other one

    On Topic: Prob whith Greek is not that they got a crisis but that they gave wrong nubers to the EU so everyone thought it's fine till it was to bad to change easily.

    Fact is, things can change in one day. Or they can change in 10 years. Everyday there are some new economy rules and people are being paid less and less. I don't know where this might lead to but I hope it will sometime end.

    But they won't change in one day.

    Rebuilding an economy tends to be slower than killing it.

    By saying change I don't mean like " we are out of the crisis " statements. People need to know how long this will last and they also need hope. People used to talk about football or anything else when they went out. Now the only thing they talk about is the crisis.

    It's not they were willing to buy, it's rather a directive. If you don't buy (for NATO countries), you get strict sanctions, probably stricter than current ones.

    Yeah I know what im talking about, the EU monetary union was a subject in my major. But as you also pointed out helping one country in the condition of the same currency would cause problems to another country or vice versa - preventing crisis in another would deepen the crisis in the 1st country - this is a negative effect of a single currency that otherwise would've been solved more properly on their own if not in such monetary union.

    I wouldn't say it means equal economy because when the standard remains the same introducing a more expensive currency would only make things worse, which in my country when introduce the euro and the standard of living remains that lower than other EU members, I dont think this is 'equal economy'

    That's what I mean.

    They shouldn't have introduced Euro in some countries, obviously like Greece. However you can have Euro in both France or Germany, although the German economy is stronger, France's economy is very good too. So you can have the same currency between those two countries. But adding Euro to France, Germany and Romania for example, would be total fail, because Germany and France would have to patch up the problems in Romania, and then for example Romania doesn't give the money back to Germany or France, because it's harder to have control over an entire country (like Romania) then to have control over one state in the US. So then there are even more money losses for the EU.
