  1. Athens Puts a Price on War

    Greek officials say Germany owes $303 billion to cover reparations for the Nazi occupation of World War II, including a loan the Nazis forced Greece to make. Germany says the reparations issue was legally settled in 1990, and it’s surely no coincidence that Greece makes the demand while trying to dig out of an economic hole, and eurozone debt. Such a large reparations payment would cover Greek debt and then some, but the demand is bound to do little to warm Teutonic representatives in ongoing bailout talks.
