It's all Greek to me.

Beware of Greeks Bearing Bonds. A bit long but explains the reality of the situation in Greece. Greece's economy will change when the mentality of the Greeks changes. Anything else is a waste of time.

This year's recession will see the economy shrink around 6.5 percent, the document estimated. Unemployment is predicted to rise to 24.7 percent in 2013 from an average 23.5 percent in 2012.

You're assuming it's their money in the first place. When it comes to the wealthy, do you honestly believe they deserve money merely for taking the risk of putting their money up to start a business? If that's the case, go bankroll a compulsive gambler, after all he's risking his money in order to make it big. I throw my lot in with labor, you know the people who actually create products and wealth. Tax the rich free the workers.

Four more years and another $5 or $6 trillion added to the debt. Not even the US can sustain that kind of borrowing for much longer.

Does anybody really think that this economic system is sustainable?

Seriously, you fail to see the problem with allowing( yes, allowing) the few rich to concentrate society's wealth?
Not theirs. Wealth exists only because of society and their collective production.
Stopping the flow of cash by HOARDING is not a viable strategy. Yes, living in a castle while workers live in squalor is hoarding.

In this life, the lesson is Use what you need, Take no more, Return the rest to your fellows.

Yeah, because Greece was a model of sound fiscal policy and transparent government before those greedy bankers kicked their bond rates up a couple of percent. Austerity may not be the best way to get out of their mess, but it sure as hell didn't cause it. Greece has not only squandered every opportunity to show that it can be serious about getting its house in order, it used the proceeds to dig itself in even deeper. Greece is the Lindsay Lohan of Europe.

If the people of Greece were serious about getting their house in order they wouldn't have elected the current government. They should have defaulted and went hard left. It would have been tough going at first, sure but people are scared so they voted for the pro-cuts pro-bailouts people. People are still scared, things are still uncertain. Now we are seeing a rise in the Golden Dawn party. Fascism is on the rise in Greece and it's only going to get worse.

You do realize the rich are not hoarding money, don't you? To hoard it, it'd have to be taken out of circulation entirely. What they're doing is investing it or using it to buy products. Those investments and products may or may not be in the US, but it's not hidden in a mattress. They're using it to get even richer.

The only money the Rich leave in this country is money they haven't stole yet.

Then you've failed all of your history classes. Human nature is about getting everything you possibly can for your specific group. That can be a family, a small village, town, country, group, whatever. It is conflict based - winners and losers. Just like nature.
