Lest you think I disagree with Krugman too much

Krugman makes the obvious point that being fixed to the Euro hardly imunizes you from financial crises.

I still do not get Willem Buiter's pamphleting for the UK joining the Eurozone.  This post was more softly stated than normal.

You "don't get" Buiter's point of view because Buiter is just wrong.

I applaud your effort to back your intuitively correct views with some models. However a lot of things can be "proven" with models- as Alan Greenspan has shown us.
