L’euro, handicap ou atout en cas de crise grave ?

Les pays européens qui font face à une crise grave de leur endettement public peuvent avoir l’impression que leur appartenance à la zone euro constitue plutôt un handicap qu’un atout. En effet, les pays qui disposent d’une monnaie nationale peuvent espérer résoudre leur crise d’une façon plus satisfaisante sur le plan économique et social en procédant à une dévaluation de leur monnaie et en menant une politique monétaire généreuse. Mais, la sortie de la zone euro risque d’être coûteuse sur le plan économique, politique et social. De plus, elle semble inutile, car ce n’est pas l’euro qui constitue un handicap, mais plutôt le mécanisme de résolution des crises retenue par l’Europe. En fait, la solution à une telle crise peut être trouvée dans le cadre de la zone euro par l’adoption de mesures de solidarité compatibles avec l’esprit de la construction européenne.
