I have written on this site before that Greece is a busted flush. However, those of you who still doubt this, and cling to the hype spewed forth by the Eurozone that the second bailout will fix Greece may care to consider the following:
1 Greece is now printing its own Euros, because it has nothing left of value to offer the ECB as collateral for Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA)
2 Greece's unemployment rate rose to 20.7% percent in the last three months of 2011. Youth unemployment now stands at a staggering 40%.
3 Evangelos Venizelos (a rat leaving the sinking ship) has resigned as finance minister, thus undermining any attempts by Greece to push through the financial reforms it agreed to in exchange for the second bailout.
Greece is a busted flush!
