Yet you don't discuss the product of putting A) together with B) which is the Greeks having to buy those goods using a currency that is worth 30% less than now. In short, there's the little matter of the Greek people (which is to say, Greek voters) being instantly 30% poorer and having 30% lower living standards if Grexit occurs. Indeed, with many economists thinking 30% is optimistic (I've seen some who expect a 50%+ devaluation), surely this need to be factored in to predictions about what is likely to occur in the current negotiations?That seems to me a very good reason, along with the fact that polls show 70% of Greeks want to stay in the Euro, as to why Syriza, for all the sound and fury, is not actually going to be all that keen to leave the single currency in the final analysis. After all, "vote for us and be immediately 30% (or even 50%+) poorer" presumably wasn't part of the manifesto that allowed them to attract so much public support at the election.
