Greece's big banks have seen combined daily deposit outflows of €500M-800M in recent days, according to senior Greek bankers, an accelerated outflow rate ahead of this weekend's elections on concerns the nation may move closer to abandoning the euro. Smaller banks have seen outflows of €10M-30M.

    This is both expected and terminal. When the Greek people have no confidence in their institutions and polity why should the Germans? No outside force or entity can save the Greeks from their pathologies; Until Greece flees the Euro and EU , Greeks will not have either the incentive or the will to act either to restore their economy or descent further into a third world kleptocratic oligarchy.

    Greeks are always going to be Greeks,but, even they can have common sense ! Pulling every Euro out of the bank makes good sense and the mattress full of Euros will surly beat an account loaded with monopoly drachma !


    If you look at whats going on bank runs are all over the PIIGS and German banks are flush with $s and Bunds are below 0%...

    Iceland's central bank raises its key rate by 25 bps to 5.75%. "The economic recovery is broadly based, and the growth in domestic demand is robust. Signs of recovery in the labour and real estate markets are steadily growing stronger."
