    Russia defaulted in the 90s and came out quite OK.

    link to historical data on stock market, currency ,jobs, and international lender evaluations around that time.


    Or, did you leave those out for a reason?

    I already figured you really didn't know what you were talking about.
    Actually, Russia was less of an economic basket case then than Greece is now.

    If you had even a clue about the topic you are commenting on then you would know that the 1998 Russian default resulted in a stabilization of the Russian economy, a rise in production, a fall in unemployment, etc.

    Exploitation is how Greece got itself into this mess in the first place.

    Initially they exploited the EU by gaining entry under false pretenses and then their creditors.

    Who wound up holding untold amounts of worthless Greek debt

    If that is so, then more fool the eurozone countries and the EU institutions. Greece is the worst casualty of the eurozone but Italy and Spain are suffering too. Something has to give sooner or later.

    If the US stops printing funny money - it too will resort to scamming, lying, cheating, stealing - at greater levels than it already has and is. And that's going to be a hard standard to beat. But we have creatively dishonest government. They'll figure out a way to take us down even more.

    Socialistic behaviors in our government has been around since the invent of America. And every right wing politician in Washington has played a significant role in this behavior since the very beginning of our nation. It's the mechanism that feeds them - just like those on the left.

Banks are running Nations in our age and in the recent past, when Citizens suggested banks ran the World, it was immediately denied as Conspiracy Theory. Now that it is obvious that certain banks are running the Western World, where are our Conspiracy Theory realists? Also, where are the deniers? Should banks run our World?
