Appreciate the ideas on the debt side.I have been thinking of more opportunities on the revenue side and came up with advertising (naming rights) and antiquities. Lay out the schedule of payments due over the next few years and court a select group of wealthy individuals and corporations.For a few hundred million, your name can appear on a large historic building or Greek aircraft or ship, for a billion, a logo could be placed on the Greek flag.It would be a shame to sell antiquities (and could hurt the tourist industry if it were done on a massive scale), but Sotheby's could run an extreme-elite auction, raising hundreds of millions as well.Further to that - places that have Greek treasures already should pay a retroactive tribute for them - large donors could probably be found for this on behalf of the museums that are curating the artifacts and their contributions could be tax deductible in their own countries.And finally, in a word, crowd funding.Well, not necessarily practical or sustainable, some blue sky thinking...you never know when it might lead to a real solution. On a serious note, Cyprus has made an offer (based on Cyprus' own recent experience with debt and capital controls) and is trying to pull a coalition together on behalf of Greece for debt forgiveness.
