The euro could be in danger of disappearing within the next decade if France does not continue pushing economic reforms, BlackRock Capital boss Larry Fink said Tuesday. Fink expressed his concern about the health of one of Europe's largest economies at The New York Times's DealBook Conference, mentioning France's recent downgrade by Standard & Poor's. "I don't think in 10 years time we can have a euro if we don't have a strong France and a strong Germany," he said in an interview shown on CNBC. "It's all predicated on two very strong countries and the competitiveness of France is still deteriorating." [CNBC]
