Cyprus and Malta are adopting the Euro as their currency on the 1st January 2008.

Our economy is good because we stayed out IMHO and still current is.

Talking to a german last year he reckons that everything for them went up overnight similar to when we went decimal here.

Just to have easy financial transactions doesn't cut it for me and i like the challenge of differing currency on holiday:winky:

BTW:- love the $ to £ rate:winky:

On the one hand it seems to make sense to go Euro

But... my wife is French/Belgian and we have stacks of family in Euro countries - all of them (except for the self-employed) became worse off when the currency changed to Euro. It would appear that some still are (worse off).

My opinion for what its worth is yes I belive things will cost moreif we change and people will be worse off as a result.
However im self employed and was very interested to learn from a previous post that as such I will be unafected
Please explain How

Presumably as a self employed service provider you adjust your charges to reflect your costs?

So if your costs go up you can either choose to drop your margin or increase your charges to your clients

Basically you have the control although I suppose it all depends on what service you provide.

I think that's what was implied - well that's what I inferred from it anyway

Cheers
