A split euro is the solution for Europe’s single currency

That Europe, and especially the eurozone, has not been doing well since the 2008 crisis is beyond dispute. The single currency was supposed to bring prosperity and enhance European solidarity. It has done just the opposite, with depressions in some countries greater than the Great Depression.
To answer the question about what is to be done, one has to answer another: what went wrong. Some claim that policymakers made a set of mistakes — excessive austerity and poorly designed structural reforms. In other words, there is nothing wrong with the euro that could not be fixed by putting someone else in charge.
The single currency was supposed to be a means to an end. It has become an end in itself — one that undermines more fundamental aspects of the European project, as it spreads divisiveness rather than solidarity. An amicable divorce — a relatively smooth end to the euro, perhaps instituting the proposed system of the flexible euro — could restore Europe to prosperity and enable the continent to once again focus, with renewed solidarity, on the many real challenges that it faces. Europe may have to abandon the euro to save Europe and the European project.

One day after the UK referendum results, Remain voters are protesting while many pro-Leave voters are already expressing their regret -- "Regrexit".

Regardless of 'Brexit' Vote, Experts Say, E.U. Must Rethink Status Quo


Tribulations for the euro, a debt standoff with Greece and a flawed approach to migration all inflamed the angry nationalism spreading across the Continent and Britain.

A trade deal with the EU (probably led by a new prime minister) would have to get past the House of Commons. But the House of Commons is strongly pro-Remain

It is likely that a Brexit vote would see the resignation of David Cameron and a Eurosceptic Tory as PM. But how would such a person get a deal through Parliament?

由於目前統計尚未完成,因此選舉委員會最終得到的數字可能比現在還多。 http://bbc.in/24nqCt1
