今天也不至于落到这步田地。

既然已经决定建设国际金融岛,把举国经济押宝在金融业上,却又想着凭区区三十万人的信用额度在这
个巨浪滔天的全球金融世界里生存,想什么呢?

这场危机将加速欧洲统一的步伐,正如丹麦首相刚刚所表示的

Danish PM: meltdown shows cost of rejecting euro

COPENHAGEN, Denmark: The global financial meltdown has highlighted the disadvantages of staying outside the euro zone, Denmark's prime minister said Tuesday, reaffirming his commitment to hold a new referendum on adopting Europe's common currency.

Danes opted out of the EU currency as well as some common defense and law enforcement initiatives in the 1990s. Voters rejected the euro again in a 2000 referendum.

Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who favors adopting the euro, said the financial crisis had made it "very clear" to Danes that remaining outside has a political and economic price.

Because it's not in the euro zone, Denmark was not invited when the big European nations met over the weekend to discuss their response to the financial crisis. And while the European Central Bank slashed its interest rate, Denmark had to raise its rate to defend the Danish krone.

"We have just seen, very strongly, how harmful it is for Denmark to stand outside the euro," Fogh Rasmussen told reporters Tuesday. "It shows that during financial turmoil, small currencies are more exposed. It is better to be part of a larger community."

Fogh Rasmussen said his center-right government maintains its target to hold a Danish referendum on adopting the euro before the next scheduled national election in 2011.

However, he said the EU must first resolve uncertainty over its new reform treaty, which was rejected by Irish voters in June.

The painstakingly negotiated blueprint for reshaping EU institutions and powers cannot become law unless every member of the 27-nation bloc says yes.
