Motion for a European Parliament resolution on a plan for the concerted dissolution of the euro  
B8‑0670/2015

The European Parliament,

–       having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas European integration is not a democratic movement, but a matter of ‘enlightened despotism’;

B.  whereas a single currency for heterogeneous economies is a supranational illusion and the eurozone will never be an optimum currency area;

C.  whereas, like the gold standard, the euro is a ‘barbarous relic’ and the first countries to have abandoned the gold standard in the 1930s were the first to overcome the crisis;

D.  whereas exchange rate flexibility is essential in commercial areas as a means of protection against exploitation by neighbouring countries, in line with the theories of Nobel laureate James Meade;

E.  whereas the governance of the euro goes hand in hand with ever more austerity and deregulation to the detriment of the well-being of peoples;

F.  whereas, over the last century or so, there have been over one hundred dissolutions of - or exits from - currency unions, without causing any major macroeconomic disruption;

1.  Calls on the Commission to draw up a plan for the concerted dissolution of the euro to be submitted for approval to the sovereign peoples;

2.  Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Commission.
