I would still expect that this situation (in Greece and in all of the Eurozone) be finally resolved properly, as bartering remains a short-term solution. It gets bogged down by the constant requirement of a double coincidence of wants, and results in far less efficiency and productivity than when commerce is done with a state-backed currency. Still, for what it's worth, for now this development is a triumph of the human spirit over outsize constraints, of necessity over adversity.
