The Czech National Bank has decided to drop the national currency, the crown, from the euro. The reference rate of 27 Czech crowns per euro has been fixed for three years. Observers are wondering alarmed if the Czech Republic, a small country but highly industrialized and closely integrated with the major Eurozone economies, even think to give up his goal so far dichiatato to join the single currency. So far the minimum exchange had been adopted to prevent that remittances and investments of Czechs living abroad would become too expensive and that inflation rate, already high, would increase again. At the moment the Euro has depreciated because of the Czech reverse course but it remain stable on the dollar. It’s feared that this step might also portend a political estrangement.
