re. Soros in 1992. A totally different situation, Sterling was thrown out of ERM because it was not economically reasonable level to be fixed to the DEM.

Those who bet against the Euro will lose (in the medium term). Make no mistake.

I dont think that commercial money would (Im talking about the 99%) really want to break the Euro, It does not end well in the short, middle or long run. But those at large fund management companies that own their accounts and are free to trade with, not necessarily “inside” information, but “privileged” information such as institutional investors (making allusion to Henry Paulson) have a definite advantage over the market in general. Of course, let’s not forget about all the algorithmic tools and electronic trading super computers to aid them, and of course the brightest minds in terms of economists, analysts, statisticians and lobbyist (and therefore leverage in Capitol Hill) that money can buy.
My point is that if there is anyone out there who wants to break the Euro, that someone is the George Soros who are at the top and can afford to do so and kill the Goose, except that in this case, there is a lot of gold inside the goose.
