At the end of April my latest book will be launched, called: “De Euro valt! En wat dan?” [The Euro falls! And then what?] Although politicians and financial executives can naturally not afford to say that the end of the euro is near, I am convinced that the Euro cannot be saved. The financial crisis is not the reason why the euro has come into trouble; the basic problem is that the European Union is not a full political union and therefore there is no cohesive European community. With this book I make clear that the fall of the euro offers the chance for a constructive alternative: a monetary system that is much better suited to today's dynamic and flexible global economy. More information on the book itself and the release date will follow soon!
