One may be a supporter of the Euro or a fervent critic but one aspect that is mostly overlooked in the present debate about the future of the Euro is the fact that no consideration is given to the wishes of the citizens in the countries that are affected by the turmoil in the financial markets.
The politicians in most member states of the Euro-zone (and the technocrats
that do their bidding) have introduced the Euro without bothering to ask
for the agreement of their electorates. Now they are reaping the results
of their authoritarian measure and try to get out of the problem by
forcing even more authoritarian measures on their citizens.
