So says Financial Times Associate Editor Wolfgang Münchau today.
It doesn't make much sense but I'm a eurofanatic - FT.com
He explains that his fanaticism is grounded in his geopolitical views rather than in economics. He believes the EU deserves and ought to be what he calls a superpower. He doesn't describe what that would look like or how it would operate. But then he is disarmingly candid about his formative process where euro fanaticism is concerned:
"I simply do not need any economic reason to arrive at this position, or any rational reason at all for that matter. I am like a six year old in this respect. I want the EU because I want it."
The FT is behind a paywall, but I think they allow access to a few articles monthly for nothing. For a free insight into fanaticism it is worth that much.
The article is titled 'It doesn’t make much sense but I’m a eurofanatic.' Google is your friend.
Luckily Ireland's currency policy rests on steadier ground.
