Rogoff y la Unión Monetaria

Interesante entrevista de Rogoff en Spiegel Online

'Germany Has Been the Winner in the Globalization Process'

SPIEGEL: Economic imbalances within the euro zone are regarded as one of the main reasons behind the current mess. The southern European states accuse the Germans of exporting too much. Do they have a point?

Rogoff: That is absurd. Portugal's and Spain's problem isn't Germany, it's China. The south Europeans have to understand that they cannot maintain their current standard of living in the context of globalization without significant economic reform. There are great opportunities for those who can adapt to the new realities.

Imaginate las ventas de Acura, Lexus, Cadillac y otros coches de lujo si, de repente, como lo desean los paises del sur (y Irlandia), el Euro se devaluara un 40% contra el dolar y el yen. Ya me imagino un llamado a un "Plaza Accord" II.
