The Eurozone is a political project, not an economic one

If you try to understand the Eurozone as an economic policy idea you'll quickly start to see that it's a pretty stupid idea. That will lead naturally to the conclusion that its architects were stupid people, and that the policymakers in Brussels and Frankfurt who oversee it today are also stupid people. And if you try to understand everything that's going on through the lens of stupid people doing stupid things, you'll end up misunderstanding the situation.
