Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Talos, for lack of a better place to ask this of you, has anyone in Greece brought up an examination of the Constitution in relation to the crisis.

If the worst happens and Greece is forced out, one of the biggest worries is the legitimacy of contracts and their redenomination. As Varoufakis has pointed out on many occasions, this would be an absolute nightmare, since any seller would be expecting hard currency.

My question is this: given Greece's lack of functioning state apparatus, has there been any talk about a possible reset of the Constitution? When basic contracts go haywire, this would seem to be an optimal point to start from scratch at ground level zero--as if just after a war.

My real concern is the land registry. This is a really good way for the elite to hide money in Greece. The land registry needs to be locked in.
