Wikileaks Exposes German Preparations For “A Eurozone Chapter 11″


Wikileaks Wikileaks Exposes German Preparations For A Eurozone Chapter 11

 The following cable from US ambassador to Germany Philip Murphy (“Ambassador Murphy spent 23 years at Goldman Sachs and held a variety of senior positions, including in Frankfurt, New York and Hong Kong, before becoming a Senior Director of the firm in 2003, a position he held until his retirement in 2006″)

 “CONFIDENTIAL: 10BERLIN181″ tells us all we need to know about what has been really happening behind the smooth, calm and collected German facade vis-a-vis not only Greece, but all of Europe, and what the next steps are: “A EUROZONE CHAPTER 11: DB Chief Economist Thomas Mayer told Ambassador Murphy he was pessimistic Greece would take the difficult steps needed to put its house in order.  A worst case scenario, says Mayer, could be that Germany pulls out of the Eurozone altogether in 20 years time.  In 1990, Germany’s Constitutional Court ruled that the country could withdraw from the Euro if:

1) the currency union became an “inflationary zone,” or

2) the German taxpayer became the Eurozone’s “de facto bailout provider.”  Mayer proposes a “Chapter 11 for Eurozone countries,” which would place troubled members under economic supervision until they put their house in order.  Unfortunately, there is no serious discussion of this underway, he lamented.” This was In February 2010. The discussion has since commenced.
