Definitely off topic, but I wrote the following to a an international banker friend of 50+ years experience about the Greek financial crisis
“But of more immediate import, what sayeth the banker about shutting the banks in Greece for a week. In this article http://www.theguardian.com/business/live/2015/jun/28/greek-crisis-ecb-emergency-liquidity-referendum-bailout-live#block-55907903e4b024248ae9a5ed people were taking Euros out, but if the banks don’t have any and the Europeans won’t give more, what happens then. Gotterdammerung?”
I got the following back
Possibly. Martial law? It happened here in the 30s – the “bank holiday(s)”. Having lived thru 2 bank runs, I can tell you it is a time when rationality is absent. The presumption is the Greek authorities have been planning for this. Greeks are used to violent demonstrations,. I would expect some bank buildings being burned. For a few days the country can function. More and I can not see anything but Grexit. I see a gigantic game of chicken. The Germans have been blinking up until now but the internal political cost to Merkel may be too great. Germany has MUCH to lose if Greece leaves the EU.
