Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

If the euro goes ker-blewie the financial instruments denominated in euros has as much value as German bonds denominated in Reichmarks.

No, if the €-Mark goes boom, those instruments will have as much value as ones denominated in D-Mark, as long as you possess sufficient political connections to the German government.

Of course the rest of the Eurozone may well be a wasteland by that point, and the German economy may well find itself fresh out of customers. But the currency will be sound.
