Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good to hear from you, rz!

You're right, the odds are massively stacked against the Eurozone's survival. The single currency is the greatest single mistake (though there are others) of the European project.

Your media examples remind me that this morning, on French public radio, the usual economics editorialist, an ultra-liberal journalist with Les Echos, came up with a surprise: according to new statistics, France would have been out of the trough of the financial crisis by 2011... if it hadn't been for the euro and Eurozone policies. That piece of news is going to give the pundits a job spinning. They'll probably ignore it.
