Greece has a press in Athens to print 20 euro notes and has recently started talking about using it to make up their Euro shortfall... And nobody has a drachma press - it takes longer to set up a press for mass production of a new currency than one might think. Really, where this all could lead is hard to speculate....

They could just update the existing press so it prints Geuros... or maybe with a bit more work, Gyros.

Members (citizens) of the union should share the same rights, benefits and obligations. Greek people have suffered enough in favor of the currency stability. I hope your inability to grasp that, is somehow limited to you and not the rest of your fellow countryman.

should all citizens in the EU enjoy the greece lifestyle, social services and pensions? I hope not, or else there would be no nations to bail out greece!

for-profits either have owners (if they are private) or shareholders (if they are public) who expect a return on their investment each quarter. so for-profits make short term decisions to maximize profits. Non-profits don't have this pressure, so they can make decisions that are in the best interests of the institution and possibly the students.
