Crisis and public support for the euro

Felix Roth, Lars Jonung, Felicitas Nowak-Lehmann, 5 November 2012



The euro is a unique currency in at least two ways. It is the first time that a group of democratic countries have abolished their national currencies and replaced them with a single currency that is managed by a common central bank, the ECB. The euro is also unique in that data on public attitudes towards the euro have been collected for more than 20 years (Eurobarometer 2012).
