Summary/Abstract: As of 2015, the eurozone has been the same for a long time. Central European “pre-ins” will not join the eurozone quickly because some simply are not willing and others are unable to do so. The resulting friction not only will impact the economic situation of both the existing members and “pre-ins” but also will produce tensions in the other fields, eventually leading to a negative state of division between the sceptical newcomers and the better-integrated Old Europe.
