The introduction of the euro in January 2002 in the European Union has triggered various reactions from politicians, economists and the general public. European politicians have declared the euro introduction a success. Consequently, some British politicians have been using the argument that since many Europeans have started to use the euro, the British people have to use it. In reality, the British government has never had any intention of adopting it as its currency. Economists, on the other hand, say that the union can not have a single currency operating smoothly in economies that are operating in various economic directions. What is certain is that the euro affects British business whether or not Great Britain adopts the euro.
