For an unexpected dose of holiday humor, and a surprisingly spot-on prediction of the future of Europe's monetary system, we go to none other than unelected head of Europe, Herman van Rompuy himself.
Change is the only way forward. If we want to shape our future we must embrace change. This is true for all European countries #cyprus— Herman Van Rompuy (@euHvR) May 28, 2012
And embrace change we must (not to mention stash and hoard just as Kyle Bass has done with nickels), preferably with open palms, as very soon no paper money, initially European and then generically speaking, will be left.
