Greece, Grexit and IT issues

This post is a bit tongue-in-cheek but meant to provoke discussion. Recently, especially Naked Capitalism.com has spent attention to the practical, IT issues of a Grexit. See e.g. here and here.

Here’s a thought: with the collapse of Nokia and the withdrawal of Microsoft from some of its remains in Finland and the resulting unemployment among highly skilled IT people in Finland, why not set up a Finnish-German IT task-force to engineer a controlled exit for Greece from the Eurozone ? We could include Estonia as well, so we have two countries with very advanced netbanking society and structure. This could also include reforms of tax collection (I am very happy with the Finnish tax system, as opposed to e.g. the Dutch tax system, from a user perspective that is.)

Furthermore, Estonia has experience with cybersecurity and Finland has F-Secure, which I think is a very solid company regarding virus protection and malware detection.

Just think of it: Greece could regain freedom in a hopefully non-destructive way and Finnish IT professionals get a very complicated multiyear project. Rather than Finland exiting the Eurozone, WE CAN FIXIT!
