    Can Someone please explain? I'm lost.
    You don't seem to realise that it is the pressure the Euro is under that will cause its breakup if the EU do not come to a federal agreement. Also the reason your cup of coffee can still be bought with Euros is because right now demand exists for it because of German exports, when, not if, Germany pull out of the Euro in the absense of an EU wide agreement you will need a lot more of the local funny money to buy that coffee.

    Your coin didn't look like this by any chance? - rumour has it that this design belongs to the only eurozone currency with any 'credibility'. If so, then maybe that's why it was accepted. . .

    Wow. Congratulations. Didn't know that any of the 100 odd economists with phd's in this country took more time out over and above the time consuming trials of postgraduate economics to pursue a career in chartered accountancy.

    They tend to be conflicting disciplines at times. Kinda like training to be a Zen Master in Buddhism and then afterwards becoming a strict Orthodox Rabbi.

    Not a patch on the Rotmo (or "Ritmo", as Fiat optimistically called it):

    Phd time varies widely depending on much time you have available to devote to it, I know people who took nearly the full allowed time doing their Phd and others, admittedly well financed by their parents who did in a few years.
