  1. The rest of Europe has euro denominated debts.
    In Poland, many people took mortgages 2 years ago in CHF at 2.0-2.4 exchange rate to PLN.
    Now the CHFPLN rate is 3.90 almost 2x higher.
    No tourist income, no more donations from european union.

    Dagong Global Credit Rating downgraded Poland's rating together with USA rating.

    without external capital inflow the nations financials are dead.
    Plus the babyboomers born after 2nd world war, 1946-1950, are just beginning to retire... and crash the pensions system totally, in fact it is already kaput.

    Euro banks are wary about lending to each other, causing another credit freeze.

    US Social Security will collapse within a few years.
     
  3. NY times once had a chart claiming Poland had the most unfunded liabilities of all countries....

    This was 4 years ago still.

    Maybe their economy can be supported by people coming back home.

  8. CHFPLN todays low 3.75

    today's high... 4.07

    shocking
     
  9. If Euro and Europe economy is so bad, my question is:

    Why exchange rate €/$ is still strong for €?

    I dream about a € meltdown
     
  10. Because we don't know what the new € is going to be.
