I saw a piece on BBC World Service business this morning. They filmed hundreds of Greeks in buses crossing the boarder into Bulgaria to shop for essential supplies. It seems outside the Euro area the cost of living is at least a third lower. One Bulgarian man interviewed said he can live quite comfortably there on €250 a month!
I have also seen an advertisement recently in Spain advertising Bulgarian and Romanian products being sold in car boot markets.
I think working people who have now become hopeless unemployed in the peripheral states may well start to ask if being in the Euro has ruined them.
