Chris I agree with you that they are doing everything that is in their power to fix the situation.

What pisses me off though is that when the euro/EMU was introduced all the people that was against it was belittled by the opposition with the following reasons. They never even took our concerns seriously.

1. We were uneducated
2. Stupid
3. It would stop wars amongst the countries involved
4. Protectionists
5. We would become third world countries.
6. We didn’t deserve to vote for it because we couldn’t make the right decision
7. We would always make more money on it than it costed

etc

Their only real reason they had was that one common currency would eliminate the transfer costs with exchanges.

It’s my god damn right to make fun of the people that now have been shown that we where actually right. My biggest opposition about the EMU is that sovereign countries transfers even more of their power to a quasi democratic institution like the EU. I never even thought it would turn out this bad and in retrospect even the folieheads were spot on.
