    Of course you would too, if you were Greek. Take all deposits out before the run on the Greek bank begins.
    What if Greece chooses to exit from Euro and go back to Drachma?

    Greeks voting this weekend. They STILL don't get it. It is not about austerity. It is about national sovereignty. Drink water and eat plain bread for years if they have to. But Greeks must keep their pride. Greece should not let Germany and EU dictate to it, in order to keep the bail-out funds flowing.

    Most likely no clear winner, country remains torn apart in limbo. Nothing will be solved.

    Problem is, that's exactly what they don't want to do. They all want jobs, right now. But the Gov't has no money to hire them, and local businesses don't have money to hire because the gov't has no money to support them...

    A sovereign greek state would collapse in weeks. Their economy was failing already, they just fudged to books to enter EU and that bought them some time.

    Now Greece says give me more time to carry out spending cuts. So if EC agrees, then after 2 years, Greece may ask for another 4 more years.
    Then after 4 more years, Greece may say.....actually we cannot pay back any of the bailout funds..so if you want us to remain in the euro, EC should write off all the debt.

    Well... if you own the EC or supply EC with all or most of its $$$... SURE, YOU can do that...
