How to use drachma in a sentence?

  1. Plutarch:

    He made the city [Athens], great as it was when he took it, the greatest and richest of all cities, and grew to be superior in power to kings and tyrants. Some of these actually appointed him guardian of their sons, but he did not make his estate a single drachma greater than it was when his father left it to him.

  2. Barry Eichengreen:

    The parallels with Argentina are there. A broken banking system, an unsustainable debt, and the need to restore and enhance international competitiveness, but there are reasons to think that reintroduction of the drachma and devaluation would do less for Greece than devaluation did for Argentina. Greece is less open, it exports less.

  3. Leron Shalit:

    This feels like the last opportunity to do something. Things are getting really serious, we want to send a message about staying in the euro because if we go back to the drachma, things will be incredibly difficult. We don't need to get to that point.

  4. Panagiotis Trikokglou:

    The only thing that I care about is not being humiliated by Schaeuble and the rest of them, i don't care if we go to the drachma or whatever, we support the prime minister whatever decision he makes, but now I feel a little bad, not with the prime minister but with Germany's stance. This misanthrope Schaeuble, I don't know what he's trying to achieve.

  5. Gabe Saglie:

    If The Greeks does, in fact, exit the euro and resurrect the drachma, that currency would also likely be devalued, making The Greeks an even bigger travel bargain.
