The more we learn about this one, the better. No one knows the likelihood of, say, Greece, to pull an example out of the air, pulling out of the Eurozone and reverting to the drachma. I'd guess not, but the potential is obviously real and growing.
In the midst of all of the economic and financial uncertainty, it's easy to forget the looming issue of climate change. Yet if we do not act and find a solution, issues such as the size of Greece's debt may unfortunately be somewhat academic.
Like the generation of the 1940s who rose to the occasion to fight the Italian and rise up against the German, the Greece of the 21st century must rise up and do what Greeks have done best at times of adversity: face it.
The world community will be watching the German experiment closely to see whether a new economic model take shape there can serve as a template for ushering in a new economic era. Germany's future, as well as Europe's and the world, depends on its success.
