I'm a middle-class citizen, currently living in a EU country (Greece in my case). How can I protect my little savings (that I currently have in a Greek bank) against a country default, like the one that is (very) likely to happen in Greece (or other EU countries)?
Should I take my money of the bank? Should I exchange my money for another currency so that I might benefit if the Euro (€) as a whole gets in trouble? And if yes, what's the best way to move them in another country? Should I exchange for gold? Should I split the money into more than one bank? Should I dig a hole in the ground and hide my Euros there? You might laugh with that, but there are many people doing that right now :O
