Top German central banker compares Draghi money printing plan to ''the work of the devil'':
Some interesting new polls:
- in Germany, two thirds of voters say that their country would have been better off keeping the Deutschmark instead of switching to the euro
- in France, 58% of voters say that if they voted today on the treaty that took France into the euro, they would vote against it.
- in the UK, 49% say that their country would be better off outside the EU rather than in it compared to 40% who say that the UK is better off as an EU member (the UK has never used the euro but has been a member of the EU)

The euro will not be going anywhere in the near future. There's too much at stake.
Long term, you may be correct.

A perspective from one of the major liberal mouthpieces of the US media, the NYT:

From your article... The euro zone is not about to collapse. Whether it can be sustained over the long term is not as clear.

The real problem is that the political agenda of many European politicians to keep the euro at all costs makes no economic sense, and they are setting things up for a worse blowup with every bandaid they put on the euro. They are not thinking about the economic factors rationally, only their own political agendas, something this article touches on. They are putting the entire world economy at risk for their European federalist ideology. As The Economist magazine pointed out when the euro was first created, it was ''a political project with economic consequences''.
