Life imitating art ?

With the pending financial crisis in Greece, and with the recognition that our poticians have the *MAJOR* blame for what's coming, i still could not figure out why there are so many negative reports about the Greek economy that makes borrowing even more expensive and thus hindering even more the efforts for a recovery.
Then i remembered one of the dialogs from the movie "Sneakers"

Cosmo: Posit: People think a bank might be financially shaky.
Martin Bishop: Consequence: People start to withdraw their money.
Cosmo: Result: Pretty soon it is financially shaky.
Martin Bishop: Conclusion: You can make banks fail.
Cosmo: Bzzt. I've already done that. Maybe you've heard about a few? Think bigger.
Martin Bishop: Stock market?
Cosmo: Yes.
Martin Bishop: Currency market?
Cosmo: Yes.
Martin Bishop: Commodities market?
Cosmo: Yes.
Martin Bishop: Small countries?

And these come out of movie script back in 1992...
Life imitating art ?
