Comments on: Why a Greek default wouldn’t be news Insight and investigations from our expert reporters Thu, 02 Jan 2014 05:21:21 +0000 hourly 1 By: Retsina Thu, 12 May 2011 11:43:26 +0000 This reminds me of the situation with my son’s pocket money. No matter how hard I try to get our financial affairs straight, he evades justice. He manages to spend cash he is not supposed to get until 17 weeks from now. His future riches are promised away but with no impact on the comfort of his present life. He is digging a big hole in my pocket (not his own) and it is a game he has learned to excel at rather than feel bad about. More Retsina please.
