What I also found is that as much talk as there is about Greece or other PIIGS leaving the Eurozone and thereby catalyzing the complete breakup of the euro, one other option being discussed is that Germany itself might choose to leave the Eurozone
A German departure might actually be good for the Eurozone, as the remainder of the euro would drop in value while the new German D-Mark would soar against the old euro, thereby producing the competitive re-balancing the continent desperately needs. According to a recent article
in the New York Times, there has already been huge amounts of capital being transferred out of banks in crisis countries like Spain into German banks, which demonstrates that Europeans are clearly thinking along the same lines. Given the Germans' well deserved reputation for conservative fiscal prudence, I believe that the new German D-Mark might even rise quite a bit against the dollar itself.
