That said, he has Charles Dumas on from Lombard Street Research (don't bother with wikipedia because he doesn't seem to have a page) today. Dumas has been anti-Euro all along, and was recently hired by a Dutch political party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Party_for_Freedom) to produce a report on how much the Euro has cost the Netherlands.
The leader of that party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geert_wilders) commissioned the report as part of a larger effort to get the Netherlands back on the guilder.
So, to recap: a politician (and a pretty nutty one) with a Fixed Idea hired a researcher with roughly the same Fixed Idea to produce a report on that Fixed Idea to then air in a legislative context in an effort to push political debate while the larger group was in the middle of figuring out how to cut the budget to come in line with a larger austerity plan.
Feels weirdly familiar, so I guess any ideas I had that the Netherlands are the Promised Land of Left Wing Sanity have been finished off. What I can't figure out is why Mr. Bow Tie is treating any of the people involved in this seriously. But then, I can _never_ figure out why predominantly British commentators who have been anti-Euro for over a decade (and preaching doom and gloom the whole time) keep getting air time _anywhere_.
