Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, because imports in 2012:

  1. Netherlands
  2. China.
  3. France.
  4. USA.
  5. Italy

That is a two-way relationship. Note: The Netherlands run a considerable trade surplus with Germany and that is probably the case since the revolt of the Netherlands or so. And this:

"In fact, there cannot be a Eurozone consisting of Germany and anyone else"

Is simply magical thinking.  So Germany couldn't share a currency with the Netherlands because of their unbalanced trade?
