Grexit likely?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Well my understanding was this outcome was almost ensured. We can only hope the actual government doesn't push too hard for things like a Grexit. Nobody needs to be going it alone in these troubled times.

Grexit has been delayed for a couple years already, with the Cypriot "bank holiday/Bail-IN" as an experiment. The Swiss threw the IMF/ECB/Euro under the bus just ahead of the announcement by Super Mario. All's well!

Throw the bums out!

I can't stand the portmanteau "Grexit." Way too overused, and about as original as the Japanese "sma-ho" or "seku-hara."

Surely we can do better. Time for the "Gyro-Zone" to give this poor country "Gree-financing" options, or else the country's economy will go straight to "Hellenic hand basket!" (OK, those weren't much better, but at least I'm trying!)

Germany has just been outvoted in the ECB to allow cross-border bond purchases, or "debt collectivization through the backdoor." The Germans won't be in a negotiating mood, and definitely won't tolerate debt relief on top of debt collectivization.

This is all great news for the anti-Euro parties of Europe, Alternative fur Deutschland, especially. The Greece pulling in one direction, and Germany pulling in the other, the Europe might be pulled apart.

Maybe Britain's referendum won't be necessary...

There is no end to the pain in Europe until the Euro scheme is abandoned. Greece`s problems are a direct result of the Euro regime, and there is no solution until Greece gets is souvereign currency back. Anybody who needs an explanation why should do basic homework.

WilliB: Greece`s problems are a direct result of the Euro regime, and there is no solution until Greece gets is souvereign currency back.

Didn't Greece raid the EU piggy bank and are probably now going to walk off with it?
