I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Reading in Reading, Berkshire, England, United Kingdom. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

By forcibly, I mean that it is expelled against the wish of its own government. The question is what happens to deposits. Is that a legal question rather than an economical one?

comment Would it be an advantage for Greece to solve the financial crisis by leaving the euro?
@Bobson I'm quoting the phrasing of the referendum (in translation). I agree that it is unclear. Please tell the Greek government. As to whether a eurozone exit is a possible consequence; the Greek government says it isn't, and the European Central Bank has stated that a Member State's expulsion from the EU or EMU, would be legally next to impossible. So in my view, politicians who say they will force Greece out are bluffing.

I do not trust Bild as a reliable source on the situation in Greece.

It appears my question as phrased did not clearly communicate the question I really have, which is what happens to deposits.

I have edited the question, as from the comments it appears that it was not interpreted in the way I intended it.
