ABSTRACT
The article discusses the possibility of a Greek exit from the eurozone which has become a focus of the European Union debt crisis. Greece is currently facing a political impasse due to the success of parties opposed to the austerity measures that the country must enact to receive European Union (EU) bailout payments. According to economist Domenico Lombardi, a Greek withdrawal from the eurozone would cause a systemic meltdown.
