Yes, the economic framework and points of reference that are needed for the ideal of solidarity and common interest are at the other end of the spectrum to those needed to serve the ideal of libertarianism and primacy of self-interest as promoted by some.
And of course the pro-euro's have no self interests whatsoever?
You only say "the project was flawed from the outset" because you are a vocal and vociferous advocate of the libertarian creed.
No, the euro was flawed not because I'm a 'vociferous' libertarian but because it had inherent problems that were never ironed out. Those of us that pointed out those problems, usually meet a chorus of 'little englanders, racists and xenophobes'.
But others were and are advocates of other ideals. To them the project is not flawed.
In other words it must be true because you believe it so. That’s cloud cuckoo land thinking.
Far from it, they judge from the history of Europe that it is deeply necessary. Of course, it is a very challenging and difficult road. But that does not mean it should not be done.
Far from it, they’ve never studied history or studied it and formulated their own biased view of it. History has shown that common currency areas rarely work.
