I’ve just been browsing the BBC website. There’s a headline on it today which reads: ‘Dutch boy tries to save the Euro’.
I clicked on to the story to find out what the story was about, and found this:
Wolfson Prize: Schoolboy plan to save Euro commended
An 11-year-old boy’s plan to save the eurozone has been commended in a major competition that has attracted some of the world’s top economists.
Schoolboy Jurre Hermans from the Netherlands gets a special mention – and a 100-euro gift voucher.
So: his suggestion must have been god if the world’s top economists think its good. What has Jurre Hermans suggested which has earned him a €100 gift voucher…?
He suggested Greeks should swap euros for their old currency, the drachma.
ISN’T A RETURN TO THE DRACHMA WHAT SOME HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR MONTHS!??
IT TAKES AN 11-YEAR-OLD TO BRING IT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE WORLD’S TOP ECONOMISTS!??
