Estonia to Become 17th Member of the Euro Area on January 1, 2011

Estonia to strengthen the euro area

Euro maverick Edin Mujagic writes inter alia:
"Estonia is also a living proof that economic disasters do not have to lead to enormous budget deficits.

But still its government managed to keep the budget deficit at just a tad over 1 percent of its GDP. A remarkable achievement indeed if there ever was one."
