Swedish posters, what is your take? Should I be changing the SEKs I have at home? Anyway, September 2003 is still far...

I'm all for it. As far as i'm concerned there are no drawbacks with changing to the euro.

I think that it was stupid that the Swedish government didn´t decide to impliment it when the rest of the EU did. It isn´t exactly helping our country´s economy by keeping the Krona.

I am 100 % for the € in Sweden!!!

I'm going to be in Malmoe on dec, 10-11, but sincerely I don't think it's very useful to change the currency. It would be much easier for me to use my own cash and coins in Malmo.

I guess you´ll be able to pay in EUR in Sweden, F.pier. I was in Sweden three years ago, and they accepted a mixture of German and Norwegian money.

Hey, were are the Swedish Euro haters? Apparently not as vocal at this forum as their British counterparts  Laugh out loud

So what´s you Swedes´ government´s timetable for the Euro if they win the referendum? Entry in 06, 07?

I'll vote yes. I'm so tired of the Swedish politics, always "wait and see" and let all the others do the misstakes and then jump on board.

Hopefully the Swedes will see sense and not implement the Euro...and if they do, watch the prices go up...  Pissed

Say No to the Euro!

Hello,

Prices in Ireland went up slightly (understatement of the day) but other than that, the €uro has brought nothing but benefits. I would recommend a Yes vote.

Daniel,

If we vote Yes, we'll hopefully enter in 2006. But you never know with politics.  Smile


GKirk,

I can't see any fear about rising prices. Money goes around and we will by time get them back.
And in swedish eyes the U.K is not the cheapest place neither.  Smile

Say no the the Euro (and all the BS it brings with it).

What the topic should say is:

Sweden to Hold Euro Referndum (and consider whether to be drawn into the United State of European Arrogance and Medicority, Stifle our Individuality, Remove Any Vestage of Our Culture, Walk Lockstep and be Stifled By Germany and France, etc...) who needs the "baggage" of the Euro just to make currency exchange "convenient"??

Jan Mogren:
No, but I think that soon "the others" will start doing things without asking if Sweden want's to be a part of it or not. Sometimes you have to make misstakes.

747-451, a little bitter today??

Seriously dude, with such a statement, you have no clue whatsoever about the Euro or anything that it stands for.

747-451 is absolutely right. The moment the Swedes adopt the Euro, they will be forced to practise endlessly the French and the Greek...  Laugh out loud

Here in Denmark we voted about the Euro three years ago. I voted yes, but 53% voted no so we keep our krone.

If there was a referendum here today, then I think that I would vote no.

The rules around the Euro looked so good to me, and they are basically identical to the rules of the former German Bundesbank, which served Germany so well for 50 years.

But today with economic uncertaincies in especially Portugal, Greece - AND GERNANY, and to some extent also in France and Spain... And their willingness to "bend the rules" to fit their bad economy. In this situation I thnk that Britain and Denmark have benefitted from staying outside the Euro. About Sweden I don't know, their economy is also suffering these days.

It is really a surprise that Italy seems to have become the good guy and Germany the bad guy in the Euro community.

Never mind what Sweden does, then I think that we and the British will say "wait and see". If time shows that the present Euro turmoil was a temporary breeze only, and in the future they will stick to the rules, then we may join some day. If not, then I'm happe that 53% of the Danish people were more clever than me when we voted in 1999.

At the moment, the UK economy is booming without the Euro.

Right, 747-451, and then the evil United States of Europe will create a World Government, send black helicopters after us, repeal the Bill of Rights, and force women to have abortions....  Yeah sure

Seriously, this is just silly. There are valid arguments, economic and otherwise, for and against the euro, both of which are often presented here on a.net, but your hysterical rant just shows how weak your grasp of modern Europe really is.

A common currency will lead to a removal of "any last vestage of [a European country's] heritage"? That's laughable; Italy has been in the EU for decades, and there's certainly no less Italian culture out there than before. On the contrary, the free flow of people and ideas now enables culture to travel across borders more easily than ever. People in EU member states are, by and large, happy that their countries are members, even though they realize that the EU has its share of problems. Membership has improved people's lives, and that's what counts. If any country's "culture" is defined by its currency, as some inadvertently imply, then that country has major problems.

I also don't agree that the EU will stifle smaller countries at the expense of France and Germany. Sure, those countries have a greater say in running the Union, but it is in their interest for the entire continent to do well. They are not isolated islands; they need other EU members to create a prosperous Europe. And both are modern, admirable countries; constantly fearing their influence, be it political, cultural, or economic, is just as silly as constantly fearing American influence. Just because some countries are more influential doesn't meen that others will be stifled.

Well,

for me in personal I would like to see Sweden go to the €.
This is mainly cause then I don't have to change to krona when I go there.  Big grin
I am swedish by the way.
Don't think the Swedish krona will get any stronger either.

Ha en bra dag!
(Have a nice day.)
When in doubt, flat out!
