Greece & Germany are at opposite ends of the ongoing eurocurrency crisis, & while it's easy to understand Germany's defence of the euro, it's not so easy to understand Greece: this book helps. The simple truth is that while Greece (along with other countries in outer Europe) overbought with the easy money of the eurobubble, it was largely Germany (as well as China) that was doing the selling. It's important to understand Greece intelligently, to avoid condoning threats to her democracy, the euro, & the future of Europe as a trading bloc. Under the hysteria of computerised global trading, these futures - & ours - are inextricably shared.
