Let Greece Go

by Barry Ritholtz


June 19, 2015

The never ending sturm und drang over the state of Greek debt, membership in the euro zone and the potential shocks of a debt default have moved from tragedy to comedy to monotony.

The solution is simple. It won’t be fast, it won’t be easy, but it will be a huge improvement for all concerned.

Let Greece go.

Hey Greece -- if anyone is listening -- just default on the debt and start anew. The rest of Europe has caused the country and everyone else enough agita: just let Greece leave the euro zone in peace. Sure, it will be a long torturous process, but at least Greece -- and maybe the euro region -- will start moving in the right direction.
