In some ways the euro is leading Europe to become more integrated through crisis. While Europeans traditionally do not leave their native country, the eurozone crisis has made the United Kingdom and to a lesser extent Germany desirable destinations for southern Europeans who wish to leave their countries' economic troubles behind, said Ofer Shoshan, chief executive of One Hour Translation.
"Most people are trying to go to the stronger economies," Shoshan said. "If you work in a hotel in Greece, there are no people coming. You might as well be working in a hotel someplace different."
