Why Poland Should Adopt the Euro

In the present situation, the single currency would be a lifeboat for Poland

If we do not want to fall into the margins of the European Union in the new deal, we should cooperate with the center parties in the European Parliament and start trying to join the eurozone.

For decades, the European Union has seemed an immovable goal of our aspirations. We were approaching and adapting to the great ideal that was the European norm in our eyes, and when we finally became part of the EU, we began to note with concern that nothing – including Europe – is standing still.

Internal Outsider

Five years ago nobody could yet imagine the effects of the presence of nationalistic hypocrites in the European Parliament. People like Nigel Farage built a bridgehead in Europe for an anti-European offensive, and before anyone figured it out, they ensure tragicomic Brexit to Europe. The United Kingdom, although it still remains a member of the European Union and even participates in elections to the European Parliament, has condemned itself to isolation and allowed that strategic decisions on the Union will be made without its participation.

Poland may face the same – it can stand and watch the development of events from the position of the outsider or it can strongly seek for solutions that will be beneficial to us. But the last option requires alliances with the mainstream parties.
