Take the defaults now and the currency exits now before the debt is so large it will take the entire EMU down, including Germany and Finland. You have to take the pain and cut out the cancers of Greece, Spain, Portugal, and probably Italy also – not just take more painkillers while the cancers grow and spread.

The 17 member EMU absolutely will not survive, so it is crucial to have the surgery now and take this pain rather than delay and make the pain and damage worse – or kill the patient entirely.

It is a paper loss by the European banks and it can be mostly absorbed by the ECB.

Greek Depositors Withdrew $898 Million From Banks Monday.

That just tells you a whole lot, doesn’t it?

To even note this happening to Hollande’s plane, let alone draw significance from it is silly.
