This is not isolated to Greece or the Euro Zone. This is going on throughout the world. Even China for goodness sake.

is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as a manor of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."-------John Donne

If people are losing their jobs and instead of giving them money you take away from them, all you are doing is killing your economy.. I disagreed with Bush when he started this but in the end he had it right... Merkel is playing with fire... We will save Europe once more.. Watch closely because it's coming...

If the Germans don't like Greece and Portugal hey we will recruit them no problem... Forget the euro and the drachma here is the mighty Dollar baby...

I'm merely saying that...if the government can't support the Greek pensioners and other social security commitments, people will migrate especially if they have dual citizenship.

It could be Greeks, or any other group of Ex Pats that have an "Entitlement" because they paid taxes in another country.

If I offended you Argiros, I apolgise.


yea I'm sorry too mate... but fak me... everyone seems to be an expert on Greek economics lately, and its been wearing my nerves. But I should not snap like that.

A frosty on me, cheers!

They better back their new currency with gold or silver if they don't want a total shˇtstorm. There's about $160B in bank deposits so that would mean... they had better get accumulating asap.
