Current account – balanced in the Eurozone; US deficit over 5% of GDP
Fiscal deficit – 4% for the Eurozone; close to 10% in the US
Sovereign debt – around 80% of GDP in the Eurozone; around 100% in the US
Exhange rate – EUR buys about 10% more USD than at inception of the Euro
Now, if that is not a near-perfect score card, I don’t know what is! A visitor from Mars would have to conclude that the Eurozone is the strongest business region and the Euro the strongest currency in the world.
