Panicking savers in Greece have withdrawn over €3 billion in deposits from the country’s banks between June 15 and June 18, with a record €1 billion having left Greek banks on Thursday, banking sources told Reuters.
As the fears of Greece defaulting on its €316 billion debt and leaving the eurozone are escalating, people in Greece are rushing to take their savings out of banks. An estimated €200-€300 million a day was leaving the country prior to this week.
Between October and April €30 billion left Greek banks, according to data from the Bank of Greece.

Greece is just in a pathetic state. Several European countries on the Mediterranean like Portugal, Spain and Italy are also facing similar problems but it seems Greece is doing really badly. Halafu waafrika wanakufa maji wakijaribu kucross hiyo sea to reach the 'promised land'. Sad.

Watoke Eurozone tu mara moja and get on with their lives.
I doubt Eurozone would dare let Greece float away, especially now that the UK membership is subject to a referendum, and Greece is fully aware of this. The exit of Greece could trigger similar moves from other troubled economies.

The reasons for an EU exit by Britain are not shared with the Greeks.
The UK wanaonea Germany mbali and the memories of what Hitler dreamed of for Europe and the consequencies that the war brought to the Uk is still very fresh in the mindset of all Brits. The British fear that the EU is a German idea that Germany has gone out of its way to finance and create.The Greeks feel like just another pawn being used in the Economic enslavement of all "poorer" states within the EU by mighty Germany who is so far calling the shots as far as the financing of the poorer states in the EU. Ireland for example has all but bended over and got shafted so hard by the EU loans they are nothing more than their "bitches".... save for the modern infrastructure they enjoy but for which their children`s children will always be thankful to the EU for.
The Greeks are basically saying; we are not that desperate like Poland,Czech or Slovania and we have a rich History going back to before the Bible.We are a proud people who will not be controlled from Germany via Brussels and if we have to starve to death so be it..we shall rise again.
For the Brits on the other hand,the Germans are looked upon with the contempt and mistrust that was accorded Hitler and his ambition to rule over All Europe. The Brits still hold their currency to date and i believe that a referundum will most definitely end their membership in the EU. And all the more if the Greeks are out by the time they get the referendum.
Saying that,there are Billions of Reasons in Dollar signs that i believe will see to it that the EU prevails.

This is true. Despite all the superficial display of unity, Germany hasnt forgotten it lost the wars twice and every other nation ganged up against them. The British know germany is technically an enemy. Even Russians know that unity between germany and Britain and other european nations is unlikely and thats why they can afford to be aggressive. Germans are usually very determined and despite all the wars and occupation, they come out at the top. But they have this ambition to control all europe.
It is also true that almost all modern technology, including what americans brag with today is basically German or of German origin. The USA stole all technology including advances in biology from germany and even shipped all german scientists to USA to build them weapons and rockets, computers, and develop modern medicine. There is a grudge and mistrust between USA and Germany.

How much of this push for the euro has to do with the US in wanting to counter the Russian influence? But the Brits seem not to trust the Euro currency - wanaona itawavuta chini rather than story za hitler.

It's 'good' to know that Africans aren't the only ones being shafted by the powers that be.

Germany & the EU
The German government has mobilized the loans to stabilize Europe economically after the debt crisis. But now it faces an even bigger challenge: to give the Continent a badly needed dose of confidence, a restoration of Europe’s belief in itself. Two big questions need new, clear answers: What does Europe stand for? And what does it stand up for?

Jochen Bittner is a political editor for the weekly newspaper Die Zeit.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/17/o...bittner-why-germany-cant-lead-europehtml.html
Read his thoughts and forget yours about Hitler.

Imagine a building in Berlin tall enough to provide a look across the entire continent — and beyond. What do you see?
To the east, you spot a former superpower that strives to regain its old glory as it degenerates into dictatorship. To the west, across the Atlantic, you observe an actual superpower in retreat, tired of providing security for Europe’s periphery, especially to a Middle East that is losing its state structures.
And what do you see below your feet? A continent that could be a superpower, but that is so busy holding body and soul together that you can actually feel the ground shake, far below you.
Europeans are dizzy, no doubt. That’s not a bad thing, in principle. Dizziness can be the best way to find a new, firmer stand. The problem for Europe is that it takes an enormously strong will and political talent to balance a body with 28 brains.
The German government has mobilized the loans to stabilize Europe economically after the debt crisis. But now it faces an even bigger challenge: to give the Continent a badly needed dose of confidence, a restoration of Europe’s belief in itself. Two big questions need new, clear answers: What does Europe stand for? And what does it stand up for?
The old narrative, whereby European integration brings peace and wealth, is history. A narrative of the opposite kind grows stronger. Considerable parts of the third generation of European Union politicians and citizens are openly hostile to the kind of supranationalism established in Brussels.
There’s Marine Le Pen, head of France’s right-wing National Front party, who has a chance of becoming the country’s next president in 2017. At the same time, the anti-European Union United Kingdom Independence Party, UKIP, has forced Prime Minister David Cameron and the euroskeptics in his Conservative party to take the offensive and call a referendum on Britain’s membership in the union by the end of 2017.
Whereas a “Grexit,” a Greek exit from the eurozone, might be painful, a Brexit, a loss of Britain from the union itself, would be a disaster. The European Union would not simply lose one — already insular — of its 28 members. It would lose one of the largest and most powerful.
And, once disintegration starts, centrifugal dynamics could easily get out of hand. The Poles have just elected as their new president the 43-year-old Andrzej Duda, a homegrown neoconservative who not only opposes joining the eurozone but who, in his euroskeptic tone, sounds like a Continental David Cameron. He owes his sudden success to the young voters — 62 percent of those between 19 and 29 years old voted for him, an ominous sign for the European Union’s standing in Eastern Europe.
The opposition of the young against the Europe of old — and the older generations — is a grossly underestimated danger to the legitimacy of the entire European Union. In Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy, where youth unemployment has risen to nearly 45 percent, “the E.U. has come to represent little more than managed decline,” as The Economist rightly noted.
What has been the dream of European supranationalism for some has turned into the nightmare of foreign economic diktat for others. What was promised as unparalleled prosperity from free trade and globalization has, for millions of young Europeans, transformed into the reality of austerity and the realization that they will probably never enjoy the living standards of their parents.
This, in particular, is a dangerous disappointment; it nourishes a nostalgia for yesterday’s world — for less globalization and for alternatives to what is regarded as a “neoliberal” economy. One can easily imagine how much pleasure Vladimir V. Putin, the Russian president, takes in looking down on a Europe that is increasingly bewildered over the question of what is actually worth defending.
Government officials in Berlin know that it is up to them, not Brussels, to provide an answer. Not only did Germany emerge from the euro crisis as the leading European economy by far; it also enjoys increasing soft power, both in Europe and in the world. And Germany knows it has to act. The head of policy planning in the Foreign Ministry, Thomas Bagger, recently established the guiding formula for Berlin’s approach to its newfound position: to immediately clarify that this German moment needed to be transformed into a European moment. But how?
The truth is that at the height of its power, Germany is politically overstretched. The euro crisis, the Ukraine crisis, the crisis of confidence — it’s just too many crises for a single nation. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the foreign minister, reportedly sacrifices his weekends for tasks like bilateral negotiations that, in a calmer time, were routine work for his predecessors.
Talking to high-ranking diplomats in Berlin, you hear few new, compelling ideas about how to handle the stress. Instead: a series of sighs and hand-wringing. To make things worse, both Mr. Steinmeier and Chancellor Angela Merkel are not the kind of characters to speak to people’s hearts. In mentality and method, they are head politicians: critical analysts and incrementalists who always look and rarely leap.
In other words, Europe can’t look to Germany for long-term leadership, at least not now. Germany can only provide interim stability; it cannot resolve the dizzying chaos itself.
And this is nothing new for the Continent. Europe has always needed several engines. France must return to its former position as a co-leader of the European Union, and Britain and Poland must stay within it.
The real danger of the German moment for the rest of Europe is this: Both European Union governments, and their voters, are getting used to feeling helpless and looking to Berlin for answers, and for help. But, believe it or not, Berlin needs help, too.

yeah. Hitler's scientist Werner von Braun designed the first ballistic missile and all US spacecrafts before the space shuttle including Apollo 11 and that tech is still used to date. Its important to note that His Saturn V rockets never failed even once.

What tech is really American in origin? Why don't we hear of German technology much (except in motoring)?

Its not something I have known forever, but its something I realised and confirmed as I became more acquainted to technology and engineering. Its difficult to realize that English speakers arent the biggest contributors since the basic bias is that white people speak English and the fact that English speakers are the most outspoken. Why dont you read about most technology you know and you will find out that much of it is originally german. I understand technology in its ground breaking fundamental form and not the monetized publicized end product such as ipads and macs. Contributions to medicine and philosophy too are unsurpassed. Maths ofcourse goes along with tech, especially calculus, which is of german origin.
https://en.wikipedia.org/?title=Science_and_technology_in_Germany

Germans are thought to be too boring, mechanical and technical, and too orderly though. They are also known for composing classical music, which is more like programming than carefree music.

Even most innovators in the US were german immigrants or German Jews(refugees and their descendants).
A good number of revolutionary tech people in the US have German surnames such as those ending with -berg, which is german and mostly used by German jews immigrants and related people.

Yea, at the time of second world war they were the most technologically advanced country on earth. Though they were very brutal racists and their brief colonial history in Africa was a murder spree, read the Herero of Namibia story.

To add he was a Nazi to the core but due to his brains no Jew would ever have curtailed his rise in the states.
