Unter den international führenden Wirtschaftswissenschaftlern hatte die Europäische Währungsunion nie viele Anhänger. Doch kaum ein renommierter Ökonom hat den Euro so früh und so deutlich zur Schnapsidee erklärt wie Martin Feldstein. Der Harvard-Professor prognostizierte bereits im Jahr 1992, der Euro werde sich als eine „wirtschaftliche Bürde“ für Europa erweisen. Heute sieht sich „der Mann, der die europäische Schuldenkrise vorhersah“ („Washington Post“), bestätigt.
