With all of Greece’s troubles, I got to thinking about the differences between the EU and the US, another federation of sorts, though without the same level of sovereignty among its members.
- Would Greece do better fiscally if it were to join the US as a State or Territory?
- What effect would it have on the US? Would the US be able to lift Greece back up to normalcy, or at least up to the level of California or another fiscally challenged but not circling the toilet jurisdiction?
- What are the chances, politically, that such a thing could go through?
