The eurozone's poorer former communist nations, having themselves endured painful market reforms and austerity programs, are taking a hard line on Greece after its people voted to reject bailout terms.

At last something positive - a little present from Tsypras and Varufakis.
Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes
THE nation of Greece said sorry to the European Union with a present of an enormous wooden horse.

Something I've been saying for a while now about our big bad neighbour to the east: "Contemporary analysis of Russian foreign policy understandably focuses on Ukraine and the Caucasus, but real drama is unfolding much farther east. Having lost its European empire in the twentieth century, Russia may find that its biggest threat in the twenty-first is that of the loss of its Asian empire. Stretching for thousands of miles east of Siberia, the Russian Far East is thinly settled and poorly integrated into the rest of the country. In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the United States because it could neither govern nor defend it. Today’s Russia must act soon to prevent a similar scenario on its eastern flank."

And that's the one REAL interpretation of the crisis
German philosophers have never really believed much in responding to a crisis.

"The collapse of Greece’s corrupt political centre was marked earlier this year by the election of the left coalition, Syriza. Its success was built on the lie that it could deliver the same financial aid with fewer of the austere strings than its predecessors. Now that this lie has run it course, Syriza has abdicated responsibility for its own failure."

Hmmm my contact book tends toward the rational end of the spectrum. Don't think any soothsayers in there.

"Mr Tsipras may claim a democratic mandate to demand a new deal, but the democratic pressures on other EU leaders might make it impossible for them to give him one even if they were so inclined."
 
Greek voters have rejected austerity. Whether they meant to or not, they may find out they have also rejected the euro http://econ.st/1NJFlqP

"The Kremlin will see Grexit as revenge for the fall of the Soviet Union" (original in Spanish) and an English version translated by Google, for what it's worth: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Finternacional.elpais.com%2Finternacional%2F2015%2F07%2F01%2Factualidad%2F1435779756_269800.html&edit-text=

For once, I have to take a stand against an idiotic EU rule: Italy is in the doghouse because it doesn't allow production of cheese from powdered or reconstituted milk. Cheese made without fresh milk is an insult to taste and traditional high quality products, to the exclusive benefit of industrial food makers. I hope that the industrial lobby is told to go and get its head boiled - fast
