Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

An observation:

With Cyprus officially adopting the euro as its currency today, it’s sealed its membership in the European Union.

Not only that, but now that it shares a common currency with, specifically, fellow EU member Greece, it seems that an economic version of enosis (union) has been achieved between the two Hellenic nationstates. Travel and transaction between Cyprus and Greece is now seamless — no passport and no currency conversion required.

Not that this end-around solves the decades of strife between Greek and Turkish Cypriots. But at least one lingering political sticking point has been dislodged.

  1. very interesting thought.

    … and in terms of demographics things will change, one way or another, as an inclusive society in a wider State, Cypriots themselves will become a minority, whether Grecophone or Turcophone, within a growing population of mobile citizens seeking to establish themselves in social exchange strategically. It’s population may well be 12 million in two hundred years, if one believes that we can defeat our ignorance as Human Beings, in Africa, and in the Middle East, as well.
