Cyprus and Malta are adopting the Euro as their currency on the 1st January 2008.
Hope we dont ever
why john, do you like having to mess on changing money!
the sooner the better for me
if as members why should we not tow the line? one common market one currency
should we not tow the line? it has not done the irish any harm
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
BTW:- love the $ to £ rate
the only ones that gain is the city or govement .joe blogs on the street wonts the same as are counterparts same severenc pay as others but we vitoed it as it would cost the goverment (mastrick treatey)
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).
All my Irish friends reckon they were stuffed royally when they went to the Euro.
So why go to the Euro thenoh:
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
