Jun 24th 2009 12:28AM Just read your article on "the amero conspiracy" (Jan 26 '09). The logic you use* would dictate against the existence of the euro, too -- or indeed, any event in human affairs that hasn't already occurred.
* Can't see it/can't see it yet -> Must be a conspiracy! -> Did somebody say conspiracy? -> Hahaha!
"Conspiracies tend to perpetuate because you cannot prove a negative..." Of course you can -- you can't DISprove a negative; and attempts to argue the point tend to dissolve into pop psychology.
I don't see what any of it has to do with a common currency unit, the arguments for or against which have to do with economic benefits and costs. Following the introduction of the euro a decade ago, these dynamics can be clearly debated (even in the context of North America) without recourse to pop psychology. Either way, your logic and approach guarantees you'll be the last to know.
