Contrary to the M5S, however, the AfD’s main leader, Bernd Lucke, is not a populist comedian, but an even-tempered 50-year old economics professor at the University of Hamburg. Lucke is also founder and chairman of the “Plenum of Economistsâ€, a German initiative formed in 2010 to challenge the creation of the euro area’s permanent bailout fund, the ESM.
Parallel domestic currencies â€" similar to the introduction of the euro â€" with initially fixed exchange rates, which would subsequently be adjusted to reflect differences in economic strength, seem to be one of the options considered by Lucke and his academic peers.

AfD founder Bernd Lucke, who wants Greece to leave the euro zone, said open debate should make the AfD stronger and united by Sunday's close of the meeting, including a decision on whether to change the rules to pick just one leader by December.
"We have different opinions on the party's direction but we found a compromise and closed ranks," Lucke said, referring to a deal to cut the three-person AfD leadership to two and then to one.
Lucke, an economics professor, quit Merkel's Christian Democrats after 33 years to found the AfD with other frustrated arch conservatives in 2013.
"We all have the same goal of establishing a new party in Germany that's a credible alternative to the old parties," he told delegates.
Lucke has fought a spectacular public battle to demote his two co-leaders, who are popular with the AfD's far-right wing. They called Lucke a "control freak" with a "despot-like style of leadership" while his allies viscerally attacked his naysayers.

"We believe that we're very close to the 5 percent hurdle," AfD chairman Bernd Lucke said at a press conference in Berlin. Even so, voter awareness that the party exists is "not yet satisfactory," he said.
"The concerns of citizens can clearly be felt," said Lucke, an economics professor at Hamburg University. "This theme will be our main topic on the streets and town squares" as the party gears up for election day, he said.
Italian and Spanish government bonds were little changed today, a sign that investors may be willing to tolerate political unrest in Europe's most-indebted nations. Portuguese 10-year bonds trimmed a three-day decline that was sparked partly by concern the country's government could collapse amid disagreement over austerity.
Southern European countries can't cope with the competitive pressure exerted by the euro and are suffering because they can't devalue the 17-nation single currency, Lucke said May 16 in a Bloomberg Television interview. Countries such as Spain, Greece and Cyprus should quit the common currency to return to economic health, he said.
While short of a comprehensive program, the party has created committees to fill gaps in its platform outside its main area of competence, Lucke said today he said. The AfD will compete in the federal election in all of Germany's 16 states, he said.
The party is also drawing up plans to overhaul Germany's dual health-insurance system, reorganize military procurement and review Germany's foreign military operations outside the North Atlantic Treaty Organization area, Lucke said.

Party founder Bernd Lucke, an economics professor, says even though the worst of the economic crisis appeared to have passed, "not a single problem in Europe has been solved."
"The symptoms have been treated in that all the problems have been patched up with a lot of money," he said.

AfD leader Bernd Lucke, a former economics professor at Hamburg University, has steered his party to around five percent support, the hurdle to representation in the state parliament.
The AfD, which has been rocked by leadership battles and internal strife, attempted to paper over the cracks at a party congress late last month.
"We put a difficult chapter of our party history behind us," Lucke told reporters last week, insisting it had not cost the AfD support.
