Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When you realize that the history in Greece was much more about famine (700k dead or 12 to 15% of the population) than it was about gunshots or hangings or the like) you realize there is some resonance there.

I don't understand the Greek politicians at this point. It's pretty clear that Germany will never agree to the ECB issuing Eurobonds.

When the people's lifetime savings run out in a year or so, the Greek pols will have absolutely no choice.
