After 2008 Poland and Romania devaluated their currency. Other countries tried ‘internal devaluation’ (Spain, Portugal, Greece, Ireland, The Baltic states). Are there any differences when it comes to unemployment (source: the new Eurostat data which revised unemployment in august with +0,1% and showed an additional 0,1% rise in september)? According to me, the evidence is at least suggestive. By the way – unemployment in Greece and Spain might soon reach 30 and maybe even 35%. Is the Euro going to survive this?
