Juncker's State of the Union Address

====================================================================

Question 1; Do you agree that euro membership should be compulsory for all EU member states?

====================================================================

Answer:
Neither agree nor disagree
Confidence level:
Extremely confident
Comment:
Question is what do we mean by EU. If we mean a free trade zone, then being also a member of the Euro Zone should not be required. If we tend to a federal view of the EU, then membership of the EU and EZ should go hand in hand. If the question is whether should current member of the EU be also members of the EZ, my answer would be no.

German current account surpluses
