Market News International is reporting that the German Finance Ministry may ask Greece to exit the euro "temporarily" while it straightens out its finances.

It is another working scenario which is not new but has emerged in the past month as the most likely outcome for the German finance ministry, one of the officials said.

Thus the Eurozone begins its inevitable implosion...
And total crap.
Ummmm.....this won’t be very easy and most of all not practical. They are only extending and worsening their demise IMO.
Gold will be reaching a new high soon!
Well then can we ask China to ‘temporarily” exit the WTO? Or at least suspend their MFN?
Germany puts the gun to Greece’s head and tells Greece it
is going to pull the trigger but don’t worry it will only
First time I've seen this mentioned.
And it confirms a thesis I've been pushing here at FR for months.....
If the endgame is default, why bother switching to the Drachma?
Might as well go broke with Euros in your pocket.
This is the solution for Greece.....
(1) Stay in the Euro.
(2) 100% default on all government debt.
(3) Issue short term, high interest, Euro denominated debt to keep Greek banks solvent and the Greek government paying its bills.
That’s a hot one!! Did you hear the one about the temporary tax? How about the temporary toll booth? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Ah, Greece, having blown hundreds of billions into the deep blue Aegean Sea, is the victim here. OK.
Nope, Greece is not the victim. They should be turned loose.What strikes me odd is the kabuki dance in unloading them.
Temp divorce? Who gets the kids??
A trial separation.
temporary exit is switching back to drahma... then switching back to euro, with a different exchange rate... The accurate term for this may be *devaluation*.
Right you are. Go on with the inevitable already.
