Ok, ok, so it's Wednesday before Christmas and I haven't had my morning coffee. But I was reading this morning about all the yapping the French were doing about the high Euro. Then I got to this strange section wherein it discussed that both parties that actually have any shot of winning the next election (which are on both ends of the French political spectrum) are proponents of bringing back the Franc. I blinked and almost laughed aloud. Really? Really. Add to that, this comment: "While French politicians continue to worry about the strong EUR, a survey by Forsa for Stern magazine in Germany suggests that a majority of Germans (58%) would like to revert to the DEM. We very much doubt that there would be any complaints about a strong currency from Germany were that to happen, but we don't expect there are too many former EMS traders dusting off the old c.v. just yet!" The majority of Germans want the Mark back too? Am I reading that correctly? You know, if this cultural pride begins to pick up speed between France and Germany, it could make for an interesting decade.
