Opinion: (Pavel Andreyev, managing director of foreign exchange markets, Broker Credit Service, from vedomisti.ru): “If Greece decides to leave the euro zone, the effect will be the same as from its default—all the creditors will have holes in their balances, the growth of inflation will accelerate, and credit, consumer, and investment activity will drop severely.
“European banks are now experiencing a liquidity shortage since Europe is going through a trust crisis. …Banks of France are especially weak today because they hold the majority of Greek stocks.
“Due to the European foreign affairs intrigues, the decision will be to ‘throw them under a bus,’ as it happened in 2008 with Lehman Brothers.
“The collapse of one large European bank will cause a chain reaction of default.
“Inflation will be out of control, the cost of gold will reach a new historical peak. The picture will be completed with a panic of the population. …And this will be a full-blown crisis, and recovery can take months, and possibly years.”
My Comment: This is not the way things are going to be: Everything will go in the direction of the discovery of the meaning of the crisis and its correction. After all, the plan of nature (the Creator) is to uncover the purpose of its development, to bring humanity to a single system called “Adam.” Economists and leaders will have to learn how to work in a new system of absolute interconnection called “Arvut (mutual guarantee).”
