Actually it is the opposite. Most of the regular people here are against the Euro, while the political parties are the ones that praise it. The most sore example of the failure of Euro is that prices of food have increased 5-fold compared to the time before Euro. But unfortunately for the people, the salaries did not increase 5-fold... Even when you take deflation into account, the prices are still more than double from what they used to be, and you can see it in not the cash flow of food retailers, but in the stoppage of spending across the board in everything else. That in turn has led to the current situation where just this year, 10 % of the workforce have been laid off, and others are unable to get fulltime jobs anymore - regardless of education level or experience. In fact, more experienced people are first in line for lay-offs due to their higher salaries, which the companies cannot afford. Of course, the other side of the coin is that companies cannot reduce salaries, due to the extremely strong labour unions of Finland. So the only way is to lay-off people, citing "productional and financial reasons". The reason why companies cannot afford them anymore? The people that have cut back their spending to bare necessities, due to increased prices that the Euro brought along. Another sore thing is, that the government is *actively* preventing external competition to the food sector. In Finland, there are practically only two food chains! And those two are getting the high-status lots in the city plan, with the help of the "brothers in arms" in the government, who get nice little bonuses from the retail cooperatives... That is the widely known form of corruption that Finland has had for decades, and they are not really even trying to hide it. The general public is also well aware that the 10 % (!) of our national budget that we sent to aid Greece, is not helping the Greek people. It goes to the pockets of German bankers, who are acting innocent to the fraud, which they orchestrated in co-operation. Btw, if United States would have sent the same percentage in aid, the sum would have been around 200,000,000,000 USD (that's 200 billion!).
