    No, deflation is the short term result. Deflation is good, but its the fed which won't allow it.

    ????? sorry, but this is nonsense! Exactly the opposite would happen, since every country would find it necessary to hold a big stock of Euros, which would drastically increase its demand thus its price thus its value.
