The Euro is Dead; Long Live the Solid!
 
From inside the booklet:

"Never have so many been fooled, for so long, by so few”

“It is nothing less than astonishing to witness the exceptional ​lack of understanding of essential economic principles exhibited  ​by the Nomenklatura ruling the Eurozone, not only in troubled ​countries but especially in those who pretend to have solutions​ to the Eurozone problems.”

“The history of government management of money has, ​except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant ​fraud and deception.”

​"The past instability of the market economy is the consequence of the exclusion of the most important regulator of the market mechanism, money, from itself being regulated by the market process."


PREFACE

This booklet addresses the question, How can we providea feasible, long term solution for the current serious problem troubling all Eurozone member countries? The author contends that this will be hardly achieved by traditional mainstream economics recipes, not only because these have in the past proved to be mere “patches” providing short term solutions, but because in this particular case, there is another new element nonexistent within previous fiat money environments. We are referring to the element of sovereignty. The author contends that this is the fatal flaw of the Euro monetary system, which was conceived by politicians in quest of  a legacy with the help of mainstream economists advising them, who did not realize the flaw or decided to sweep it under the rug.

Amazingly, politicians in economically stronger countries of the Eurozone are currently proposing to solve the problem by taking away yet more sovereignty from country members, in order to impose harsh economic measures to governments in those countries suffering from acute recessionary forces.

Aware of the limits and deficiencies wrought by government controlled money as well as the particular political challenges presented by having one sole currency spanning many independent countries in Europe, the author puts forth a proposal involving the issuance of a new supranational currency backed by a 100 percent gold reserve, circulating side by side with the local re-issued currencies (DM, Franc, Drachma, etc.) at variable rates of exchange.


The author explains how the DLCCS-Dual Level Currency Competition System he proposes addresses the need some countries may have to act asymmetrically vis a vis other Eurozone members, from an economic point of view. He explains further that this will allow any Eurozone country member to set its own economic policy independently from Brussels, without wrecking havoc in the Eurozone.
