ABSTRACT

It discusses how the failure to stabilize its economy resulted in piling up debts without putting in reforms to recover the economy as requested by its creditors. It also talks about the chances of Greece's exit from the currency Euro. It estimates the future prospects of the U.S. dollar currency and its economy.
