I remember the euro was a really hot topic when I was in high school. A lot of very smart people supported it. I remember a lot of smart people calling the UK idiotic for not going along with the idea. When we look at the economic situation in Europe today that can be all tied to the euro's existence, it is amazing to see that the UK was right on this and that so many people were wrong. Hindsight is 20/20 and not so special. Having good foresight is incredible. Respect for Thatcher.
