If I had to do with somebody who owes me billions I would help him the way he can actually repay his debts.
What they are doing (German banks in first row) is taking advantage of a bad situation, squeezing the more they can, in a way that makes it clear that they KNOW Greece will default...
It is like giving an extra dose of heroin to somebody who is in abstinence crisis.
A normal doctor would cure the symptoms and help the patient to recover and THEN curing him NOT letting him assuming any drug...
A bad doctor would just give the patient additional heroin as long as necessary to have a fast death...
The only reason Greece hasn’t default or it is going through a "controlled default" is not to create panic in the market.
That would mean EVERYBODY selling everything.
I do not think the situation is as tragic as it looks.
After WW2 people were much poorer, everything had to be rebuilt and with no resources.
They did it.
That means that when you want you can.
The problem is that people are not aware of the situation and in principle they do not want.
They are waiting for some miracle to save them in a painless way.
They would like to save, but there is nothing they want to say good bye to.
It is like dieting eating.
How many promise: you can lose weight eating as much as you like.
This is the miracle everybody likes to believe in.
