In theory it's a tidy fix, but what happens when all the other formerly-occupied countries come asking for their money? It's a dangerous precedent, especially when other countries claims might be much, much higher.

Good idea!

Another idea, already posted in RSP, is that they could gamble on the world's stock exchanges, manipulating them by releasing news of their own policies. "Go long, good news, go short, bad news, go long..." That would in this context be a relatively honest way for them to make their money.

Pffft. Weak sauce.

Here's a much better idea - and one actually likely to be possible!

Simply search around on the Internets for all the songs illegally copied that are by Greek artists/orchestras/etc. As the going rate for one song illegally downloaded once is $22,500, it'll be pretty easy for them to rack up a few hundred billion dollars they are owed!
