Re: PIIG number 4 for the IMF- Troika begin 'monitoring' Italy
But Lenin was in Zurich when it all kicked off in February 1917 and had to blag his train ticket home from the German Empire. Revolutions happen when it becomes clear that 'business as usual' is no longer viable in the eyes of most citizens. And like you say about Lenin, people won't be worrying about what currency to use - they'll be busy abolishing yesterday in all its guises in the name of tomorrow.
