  1. Sorry for my English.
    Suppose that Greece decides to leave Euro. I would like to stay only in the trade deficit and here is my question. Greece, let us suppose, that is going to face trade deficit sooner or later.
    We know imports are real benefits and exports are real costs. Trade deficits directly improve our standard of living. On the other side Greece has to pay in dollars or Euro this deficit. It is not like USA that it runs deficit but its monetary unit is acceptable by the rest of the world. What happen in this case??
