The debate amongst the Greek community in London continues with arguments in favor and against the country staying in the Euro. But I think there are more serious questions to deal with than whether the Euro experiment has worked or not. Greece isn't the only European country in trouble and rumours of the modern states demise are somewhat premature. The Greeks have always been good at dealing with crisis and this is another example of that. The reality is that Germany and France wanted Greece in the Euro zone and they did everything they could to push for this. German companies control most of the major multinationals within the country so it makes sense that they have an interest in controlling what goes on.
