The economic abyss with youth unemployment over 60% warns there is the complete failure to create new jobs and overall 20% unemployment in Euroland would mean the end of the single currency with massive civil unrest.

It was the end of times for Europe. The mindless people still think that a strong currency is like a stock and it is strength rather than weakness.

Those touting a return to a gold standard are wishing for deflation where assets decline along with wages.
