With the ECB’s ELA and haircut decision today — several Greek banks will surely start to collapse within days (if a deal isn’t reached very shortly).

Greece, a developed, first world country. The country that laid the foundation for philosophy, art, math, science, citizenship, trial by jury, and the Olympics. Even with all of their mistakes, and their terrible missteps, this will be a horrific thing to watch.
