"They lose too much in a grexit."

This calculation is rapidly readjusted at this point. The Greek economy is peanuts in comparison to the whole EU, and setting a precedent that you can bend the rules with impunity will be more expansive.

My bet: Greek sovereign default by the end of this week. Grexit by the end of the months after the ECB stoped re-financing the Greek banks.

There is nothing natural about markets.

Markets don't just happen automatically, they are created by governments that level the playing field, provides fair jurisprudence and enforce contract law.

I am all for good governance with checks and balances precisely because I like free markets and personal liberties.
