Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Compelling arguments, but for the fact that the way that the monetary union has been done looks to be leaving more and more Eurozone countries in perpetual penury to no higher benefit than short term domestic political advantage of the "leaders" of export surplus countries. The economic structure and its proper functioning is basic. Screw that up and all the rest doesn't really matter.
