One Response to Euro zone exit should be secretive and quick

    I don’t understand why Greece has to exit EU? And, I really don’t understand why Greek have to give up their own government fiscal control to stay in the EU? There is too much emphasis on ones’ ability to devalue a currency. It is only one of the many variables. The many benefits of a common EZ currency are still there, even for Greece. Exit or not, they are not able to sell more bonds for a while. Too much debt is the problem, not the currency. Organic growth alone, even for a decade, couldn’t solve Greece’s debt problem. The sooner they face the truth and take the currency devaluation (easy way) out of the equation, the quicker they will come to a workable long term solution. They need to stay in the EU, work out their debts, get people working, and start paying ones taxes. My 2 cents. JW, Langley BC
