Forecast – Find out why we believe in near future, Sweden will become members of the EuroZone and Banking Union

I suspect a decision has already been made for Sweden to become a member of the EuroZone.
Why?
Because of the response of the Swedish Government to Nordea’s recent decision to relocate their headquarters to Finland, which has the Euro and is a member of the Banking Union.
From here it would be very easy for Sweden to quietly become a member 9in the same way as happened when she decided to become a member of the EEA.. (more…)

Getting closer to the final crunch on Brexit
