Greece’s Future Is With Euro Zone, Say Merkel and Sarkozy

After much noise over the past week in the German press about German preparations for a Eurozone sans Greece, Fr. Merkel comes along and stresses that the possibility kicking the Greeks out does not arise.

What we have here is a high-stakes game with a multitude of players positioning themselves to benefit most or lose least no matter what the final outcome.  (I was tempted to draw an analogy to a poker game, but the analogy fails because the rules are rather murkier here.)

Yet, I would say that slowly but inexorably the Greeks are being pushed out of the Eurozone.

The WSJ piece that inspired this rumination is here.
