"Europe is in trouble and it’s getting worse. I can’t imagine the euro does anything but goes lower. And I have to say after centuries of war and religious differences, I don’t know why anyone thought that France, Spain, Germany and the other nations of Europe would embrace one another’s economies. Don’t forget the last time Europe had one currency, it was ruled by the Romans."
