EURO - Germans don't like it
WORKERS, JUNE 2008 ISSUE
In a recent poll organised by the BdB German banking federation, more than half of those surveyed think that the euro is to blame for an increase in prices in recent years and about 34 per cent want to ditch the euro and bring back the Deutschmark. Indeed, in Germany the euro has the nickname "teuro" which is a play on words combining euro and "teuer", the German word for expensive.
It seems apparent that much of the EU is based on unpopular devices and institutions. Dissatisfaction and disapproval are growing.
Is it not time for the nations of Europe to sweep aside this capitalist experiment which only serves the interests of financiers and big business and consign it to oblivion?
