    Facinating piece in the FT about the future for the Eurozone.

    Let’s hope he is wrong, though I fear he is right.

    I was speaking recently to a group of investors who forced me – all but at gunpoint – to tell them how long I thought the euro would last. I normally prefer conditional forecasts but, in this case, I was asked to make an unqualified prediction. And so I yielded. My answer was that the eurozone would probably not survive the decade in its current form. As it turned out, I was the most optimistic person in the room, by far.

    On the Saturday of the first May Bank Holiday, we listened to a guy being interviewed by Jeremy Vine about currency/euro. (American I think) He was obviously well known for his financial predictions but I didn’t catch his name. He said the Euro would be non existant within 10 years.
    He is renowned for his accuracy in forcasting financial markets. I tried looking for the interview on the BBC website but failed to find it.
    Time will tell, whatever the pundits say.

    I think you mean Nouriel Roubini and yes he is credited with being one of the only people to have forseen the Meltdown.
