Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What actions could be taken presently, at least in theory, that might make Germany consider leaving the Euro? How could the issue be forced? Until or unless the matter is forced most of the Euro-zone countries will continue to be damaged by policies favorable to Germany. And if those policies are to change the only reason Germany would agree would be because of the threat of being forced our of the Euro-zone.

A new Eurozone minus Germany could be a powerful force for improvement for its members, IF the remaining members embrace policies of mutual benefit. But I don't think Germany will leave voluntarily. Too many Germans, especially those in power, think they are entitled to all of the benefits they are currently obtaining from the Euro. How can a 'Germexit' be provoked? IMO, that would be far superior to creating a Seuro-zone.
