Germany profited most from the Euro as much as it profited most from the
Deutsche Mark.
And other countries and their people were shafted badly by their
currencies as much they are by the Euro.

What the Euro changed is that Greece and the others could not use
inflation to rob their people.
The government were forced to use debts or cut spending to balance the
budget instead of the printing presses.

Economics Theory don't need to postulate rational actors.
And economy don't need them. But irrational actors are showed for the
fools they are more than often.
