    Are You for or Against the Euro?

    I am referring to the currency, of course and this is a question for members residing in European countries.
    Has your country adopted the Euro, is it in the process of doing so, or has it not yet been decided?
    Do you believe using the Euro has more positive or more negative effects? Please explain your stance.

    I've chosen "I live in an European country which uses the Euro and I believe it is more negative than positive."


    I think the Euro has a smell like "Monopoly" money, it has lost its real value, it is just game money.
    Politicians keep telling us that nothing has gone more expensive than before, but the exchange was 1:1,96 or something, almost 1:2, and many prices just change the currency, not the numbers, so things that costed DM 0,99 later costed EUR 0,99, some went a bit down transfering DM0,99 to EUR0,79, which is still more than 1:2. Of course salaries were exchanged exactly on the rate, so in the middle we got a salary shorten of about 20-30%, maybe even more.
    This is reflected quite good in that many people need free food supply services, so-called Tafeln here, although they have a regular job, and the number of people who need such a help become more and more.

    The promised advantage in export and import has not made its way down to the consumers, if there is an advantage, then it is lost in the supervisory boards or other high paid people. And it's not that goods from Europe flood our markets, instead chinese goods flood our markets and kill actively jobs. The other direction is that the common Euro market has enabled german producers to export their factories to other european countries, decreasing further the number of available jobs here.

    Another promise was that the markets should be open within the EUR area, but again this only applies to producers, not the consumer, when you visit your neighbor country you got to pay taxes for importing goods. When you go fueling your car in the Netherlands it can happen that you got to pay import taxes, or even worse, get sued for tax fraud. The law got straffed, so even when you f.e. worked for a year in another country, of course bought stuff there, you got to pay import taxes, even for things bought ten years back. Ridiculous.

    In my opinion the Euro is just another fraud against the people who got it forced upon them. In Germany of course there was no referendum (we dont have that here), polls showed though that the most people were sceptic and didnt want it. Not that our politicians would ever care about the people's opinion...

    I live in an European country which does not use the Euro and I believe it should not adopt the Euro.

    We can use the euro some places here, but I think we should stick to kroner. If we would join EU I wonder if we would take up the euro, there is more support for EU than before now.

    "I live in an European country which uses the Euro and I believe it is more negative than positive."

    The German state has introduced the EUR even when the majority of our population was against the Euro. Polls showed that Germans were very sceptical about the Euro, and we remained very sceptical until now.

    Our old currency, the Deutsche Mark (DM), was one of the hardest and best currencies of the whole world. We were very proud of our robust money and valued it very high. But now that´s all gone.

    After the introduction of the EUR many products became more expensive and remained that expensive to this very day.

    It´s no secret that I´m not in favour of the EU, so I´d love to see the DM back. Germany should dispel the Euro. It´s not a currency of the heart and it never was.

    I chose I live in an European country which does not use the Euro and I believe it should not adopt the Euro.

    I don't believe that the UK should go for the Euro. For a start, things will go up in price, something which we will not benefit from whatsoever.
    The only plus side to adopting the euro is that we won't have to go to the Bureau (SP?) de Change everytime we go abroad. But that's it.
    Other than that, we shouldn't adopt the euro.

    I think anything used as a ruse to destroy a nation's culture, people, and identity for the sake of the interests of a bunch of rich soulless "elites" is evil. This goes for the Euro and the EU as well.

    The Euro is, in my view, just another step towards globalisation. It has some advantages like not having to exchange money each time traveling through Europe, but the disadvantage is the homogenisation of Europe. In my view, Europe should be diverse, including on a monetary level.

    Romania doesn't use the Euro yet, but it's preparing to adopt it. It changed its currency recently to "New Romanian Leis" (or literally Lions) to get ready for the change. But the transition isn't good for the population. The value changes, the prices change, but the wages remain the same. Until recently, Romania was an advantageous country if someone from Germany or Hungary wanted to save some money. But now it's not anymore. Some Romanians go shopping in Hungary because it's cheaper there. I'm a little worried about what will happen financially when the transition is finished and the prices become in Euro. The population won't be able to afford anymore, which will lead to more crime, especially from the lower classes.

    Denmark has a special case.
    Although it's founding member of the EU,
    it used the Danish krone (DKK) as currency.
    In a referendum some years ago,
    Denmark rejected the Monetary Union.
    But the DKK is de facto linked to the Euro through the European Exchange Rate Mechanism.
    I'm against the Euro.

    I voted other, because I don't care whether using our own national currency is more positive than negative from an economical p.o.v. It's more important to me for Germany to remain German (including in currency), than for the economy to thrive on the basis of the Euro.
    It's the same as with immigrants. I don't care how much it benefits the economy to pay them less than natives. I prefer Germany to stay German.

    I don't like the European Union and so everything else that comes with it like the Euro. They want to erase our German identity and make us European, but German should come before European, not viceversa.
