  1. >The controversial introduction of mandatory cashpoint charges still requires approval by the European Central Bank but is expected to amount to €1 for every €1,000 transaction.

    that’s nothing.. you already pay a couple of $ here if you ‘re using an ATM from a different bank & withdrawing only $20.

  5. Greece Makes IMF Payment Amid Signs of Bailout Progress


    Cash-strapped Greece scraped together a 200 million-euro ($222 million) repayment to the International Monetary Fund on Wednesday amid signs its long-stalled bailout negotiations were making some progress.

    The payment came as Greek government officials continued their whirlwind European tour and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke to French President Francois Hollande on how to push matters forward.

    Greece has a much larger commitment of about 770 million euros to make to the IMF Tuesday. All indications are it will struggle to make that payment as well as meet some pensions and salaries due later that week.

    A potential Greek debt default could set off a chain reaction that jeopardizes its membership in Europe’s joint currency and roils the global economy.

  6. I am not surprised, I ask if any Greek voters for The anti-austerity Syriza party feel like “SUCKERS” again?
    Because rather than looking internally for community based solutions and prosperity they continue to seek help/funds from outside the nation…
    Is the Greek federal government promoting and expanding (TEM) complementary community currencies and other alternatives to grow the Local Exchange Systems?
    I can guess, but not living in Greece I have no 1st hand knowledge.

    I imagine I will be hearing the Greek ATM-No-Money Blues soon.
