If the euro zone can make it through the next year, the currency union might just muddle through. That's one way to read the results of our Question of the Week, as 44% of peHUB readers predicted that the euro zone would survive, while 32% expect it to collapse in 2012. (Maybe that is what causes the Mayan end of the world, rather than John Cusack doing it.) Odds of the failure of the Continent's common currency diminish in the out years, but with an interesting twist: More of you believe that ...

Dealmakers in Connecticut foresee continued strength in the market, a new survey says. Sixty percent of respondents to a survey said they expect a moderate increase in M&A over the next six months, according to the semi-annual ACG-Thomson Reuters DealMakers Survey, sponsored by the Association for Corporate Growth and the publisher of peHub.
