Duh... Nothing lasts forever. How much does Bloomberg pay its headline writers again? :)


Rogoff is one of the more sensible economists (he is one of the authors of This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly), which shows how bad economics has become, when the better ones still make stupid comments. You could simulate the economy and then find 80% of simulations exited but we can't build things that good. In the end he is simply trying to qualify his prediction, which means whether Greece exits or not, he will still be right.
