CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU CONFIDENT THE EURO WILL SURVIVE?

CHRIS GAZE | VERINT
“No, I think the Euro has too many fundamental flaws and is too complex to survive. It was doomed to begin with and I would like to see it go.”

PAUL SMITH | INCEPTA
“Yes. As a group of countries we trade together, our economies are interdependent and it provides collective security. Smaller economies need the euro to give them a chance of economic survival and it helps larger economies to trade more easily.”

PETE GODDERS | LLOYDS OF LONDON
“I don’t think that the euro will survive this time; possibly in many generations’ time there could be an equivalent that could work, but currently we have been forcing together too many different cultures too quickly for the euro to succeed.”
