    Default Drachma

    If Greece has to revert to the Drachma (the old rate was i euro to roughly 340 drachma) it will be devalued to such an
    extent that all them Greek escorts that work here will probably only have to see one client and they can go home and be millionaires
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but

    Well... being a millionaire or even billionaire doesn't amount to much if a loaf of bread costs a billion does it?

    Remember this, because it can happen again.

    Such hyperinflation happened to Germany in the past, which helps explain some of their attitudes.

    I believe some people in Hungary have also in recent years, had problems with loans taken out in Euros, when the Forint then fell in value against the Euro.

    My guess is that when all is said and done, the power of economics will win and it will be a YES vote. We shall see.
