Famous Eurosceptic Joseph Stiglitz suggested there will be disaster across the bloc, with the euro causing havoc in several member states.
Nobel prize winning Mr Stiglitz served as a feather-ruffling chief economist for the World Bank. Despite Brexit scaremongering being rife across the UK, Eurosceptic Stiglitz has suggested the real tough times will be for the union.
His book How to Save the Euro suggests, on its current course, the euro is certain to fail — and indeed, that it was fatally flawed from birth.
Mr Stiglitz points out the Euro's fixed exchange rate and a single interest rate for its members, which means countries must forgo the option to devalue in times of economic weakness. This danger - he predicts - will be its downfall.
