Do you expect disintegration of the country, civil war and famine? I don't think it will happen.

But their goverment will be able to use such a tool as devaluation, that is taking money out of every Greek's pocket. A tool great in its simplicity for any incompetent government.

Greeks always lived much better than their economic productivity warranted. Every time that was supposed to get rectified civil war broke out or communist and anarchist terrorist planted mombs.

Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.
