Topic started "WHY CONTINUE WITH THE EUORO?"
Thank goodness this is the speak easy forum..I'm flat dizzy with all that the OP has shared?
Are you seriously concerned with the Euro, or was it your first annoying thought to start the topic?
There are so many other underlying isses you describe? Many that have nothing to do with the Euro, perhaps that is the beauty of speaking easy!!
In lieu of quoting each item that leaves me curious, I have copied and pasted my reponses below in a diffeernt font color.
I'm quite certain that using the quote feature is not in the rules for this forum..here are my curious thoughts of yours:
Is it worthwhile to continue the experiment with this artificial currency, the Euro?
Europe is the result of many nation states with their own and different sovereigns (compare the Ottoman Sultans to the absolutist Kings of France and to the Kings of England, who gradually transferred their power to a Parliament mainly composed by commoners.
They speak different languages and have their own views on how and where they fit into a proposed Supereurope. This is not the union of 13 US states.
Knowing how difficult it is to have the political will to change something important in a country like the United States, imagine how difficult that would be in a whole bunch of different countries.
There are two types of Aliens. One is called Dollar Supply and the other one is Dollar Demand. When the world starts getting flooded with dollars the price of the USD will fall in relation to other countries. And interest rates go down. You see, we have too many dollars and the interest is the rent we pay to hold dollars. If there are many dollars you can rent them at a lower price.
In terms of anything, nefarious means something bad, wicked or villanous. You will rarely see this adjective connected to the Euro since there's nothing despicable in the Euro. It's simply another currency. Like pesos, pounds, yuan or yen. With the advantage that it's legal tender in many countries. I guess you can say the same for the dollar, even though it's not legal tender. <What? When did the USA dollar become "not" legal tender.>
Now that statement ^^^^ in its self IMO, requires a very intense back up on your part to "prove" that the USA dollar is not legal tender? Mind you, if I was in Chile, indeed, the USA Dollar would not be legal tender. If you were to come to the USA whith your Chilean Peso, it would not be legal tender.
I'm not quite sure if your intent is to prove the continuation with the Euro concern, or if this forum for you is a stage to enjoy sharing frustrations about mutiple unions, immigrants, oil production etc?
In my humble opinion, last I traveled to The Netherlands December 2014..the insanity of "who" got the bucks for dollar conversion, the rules of only using approved means of purchase <typically a chip card..incurring a "cash advance 23%+ fee for any USA /Visa card> was insane!!
The fact that the difference to convert Dollars to Euros was the least of my concern! I could go to Potts Exchange in Amsterdam, pay no fees and just take what I could get!
What I was stuck with was, The Netherlands, who uses Euros, denied the use of "credit cards"..for "anyone" in the country. Thus a horrific realization that without Euros, the USA fees for "cash advance" to use a Visa/MasterCard/Amerian Express card for purchases"..really hurt! (Without expert knowledge, I would not be surprised that other "Euro" Countries carried the same rules.) I was left thinking that The Netherlands does not have a huge "credit debt" due to the <pay cash only concept,> guest or resident.
So..was the Euro a bad thing? No..it was what it was. If I was not willing to experience my International Travel experience and learn to find the "best" exchange rate conversion from dollars to euors, I might have stayed home and gone to Disneyland!
Just my speak easy feed back! What goes around goes around! We have one life..get the most ~ wherever you are living and where you wish to go!
Apolgies in advance for any spelling errors,,I had my monkey assistant type this!
