You would think that there’s gotta be a Polish joke in here somewhere, but that is not the case.
Poland has endured years of insecurity due to its precarious geographic position in the middle of Europe. Since the end of the Cold War, Poland has been slowly coming into its own by joining the multinational organizations of the West. A minority of Poles wish to continue the journey by joining the eurozone.
Prime Minister Tusk is gambling that this minority will grow into a majority by the time elections roll around in 2015. Basically, his actions reveal that he believes that Europe will have overcome the Eurocrisis by the time Poles go to the polls for the euro-referendum.
With Eurozone GDP continuing to decrease while more countries join the bailout dole, his gamble is either audacious or delusional. Only time will tell which.
