Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The initial reason for creating the Seuro would be to protect its citizens from the ill effects of the Euro. I think a lot of Greeks and Portuguese would understand that reasoning. Being part of a single union that entails being raped daily somehow does not seem attractive to me. The initial countries would be those for whom the current Euro policies are the least optimal. IMO they would benefit merely from being in a union that had policies far closer to their individual needs. Production chains could follow. Meanwhile existing, beneficial (to Seuro zone members) production chains could be given special treatment.
