    buying time, don't you think?

    "In my local high street, which boomed after the Olympic Games of 2004, the favourite sport is now window shopping. Clothes and shoe shops seem to be staging permanent sales.

    In Kolonaki, the upmarket Athenian equivalent of Knightsbridge, I saw a shop offering 80% off. People are becoming desperate."

    Do you think desperate people are going to continue to pay for a phone for every teenage daughter in the house?

    Or will they instead decide, from now on we will have only one phone for our household?

    Germany and the EU are calling for the Greek government to impose "austerity measures". With all this talk about "austerity", do you think some Greek parents might decide, hey, maybe we've been a little too generous with our money and we need to start saving more and spending less? Or will they be more likely to give their kids even more cell phones?

    You decide. It's your call.
