This is with regards to the article, “The economic crystal ball” published on 14/01/12. I must congratulate the writer for scribing a thoroughly enjoyable and researched article. During my time at the Oxford University, my economics professor was of the opinion that forecasting economic repercussions throughout the course of a year is a massive task, and one that requires a lot of savoir faire. I totally agree with the writer’s prediction regarding the euro. I was talking to a German friend of mine the other day; and he stated categorically – in his rather typical German accent – that if anyone can save the euro; it’s Germany. I can’t disagree with that as well.
