"At which point it matters whether you're borrowing in your own currency (whether from foreigners or not) or borrowing in another currency. Because if it's your own you can just print more. If someone else owns the printing press you can't."

Given that North Korea may be doing exactly that ("super"dollars), what's to stop Greece printing "supereuros"?

If they didn't get too crazy with it, would we even find out?
