Can we just dissolve the euro and get on with life? I feel like every fiscal crisis is dragged out for months or years only to result in the same outcome.

So fire them. Maybe they'll find out what job they're out of. No one will notice. Go to a barter system and starve the bloated government.

"The unemployment rate in Greece was last reported at 17.5 percent in September of 2011."

Mm. I think I see a solution...

If the Greek gov had any guts, like Reagan, they would fire them. After Reagan fired the striking traffic controllers, he had very little trouble from public employee unions. Of course there is no Greek Reagan, and their gov and even their people have no clue. The other euro nations should just have Greece bail on the Euro, so they can go broke in peace. If the other Euro nations wont throw out Greece, and I was Germany, I would bail on the Euro myself. Better than being on the hook for endless bailouts.
