TAKING A PUNT
With all the uncertainty surrounding the eurozone crisis businesses are beginning to take precautionary measures. In the South a newly emergent trend is the taking of Punts in shops, the current locus of this trend is Clones in Co. Monaghan. In Greece they talk of the New Drachma, is there a chance we will see the New Punt emerge? Stalker, being essentially clueless in all matters financial, wonders if a global currency might emerge. Any takers for the Yuolluro – an amalgam of the 3 major currencies in the world today? Would anyone bank on the euro surviving? Would anyone bank on the phrase “to bank on something” retaining its meaning?
