Not sayonara, France, Germany, Spain, Italy... sayonara, Europe. Europeans like to brag about their history while saying that Americans have none. (Europe has castles and old houses!) But with that history comes some serious baggage, and the baggage is being released after it's been hidden away the past 10 years.
What's going on in Europe right now is akin to Texas lawmakers requiring that purchases be made only from Texas companies, or Californians requiring that jobs be "protected and preserved" only for workers who currently live in California. This doesn't seem like the foundation for a sound currency to me.
