From the item specifics:
¬†I’m offering my country for sale. What is left of it anyway. Slightly used, low wages, low pensions,¬† low expectations. Lots of sunshine though, free at the moment.
Many natural resources, minerals etc that are still untouched. Bureaucracy at its best. Great bribe-to-do system, over 20 years of experience.
Obedience at the IMF, bankers and the Troika is guaranteed, no questions asked.
The buyer will get for free 300 politicians, highly trained at the University of¬† Fine Arts of Scandals. And free Greek Bonds with extremely high international market value. For confetti.
I will provide the best possible certificate that you will ever imagine, maybe even a custom one that you’ll ask.
No hard feelings.
Update: looks like GETCO or some crazy BATS algo has been unleashed on the auction. Either that, or Brian Sack has found a calm, quiet, non-extradition venue where he will not be bothered after June when he vacates the halls of Liberty 33, and is hell bent on taking delivery. Since posting the bid has soared to over $48,000.
In what could be one of the better deals encountered on¬†Ebay, one can submit a winning bid for none other than the¬†country of Greece, currently going for the modest price of $1,550 (although with 6 more days left in the auction, there is a small chance Goldman will outbid and use it as LTRO 3 collateral). Of course, since the country is worth¬†much less than the debt¬†(all 7¬†subordinated classes of it) any new equity buyer would assume, this is a trick auction: our advice – settle for nothing less than getting paid as much as possible for “buying” the country.
Update 2: As of seconds ago, the auction has been removed from Ebay. Bavaria Sachs must have gotten wind, and after realizing someone would sneak away its latest colonial acquisition for a few thousand bucks, complained to John Donahoe
