There is a story running this morning that Greece is starting to sell off state assets such as airports, roads, banks, and possibly landmarks in order to pay off some of their debt so that they can get more of their bailout.

My thoughts are, what if the USA sold corporate branding on landmarks to raise money to pay off Government debt? What sort of branding could there be?

I'll get everyone started "The Statue of Liberty Mutual"

I've heard posted the "plan" to destroy our current currency and reboot the value with real estate but Wow!

Casinos would get in...we could have the MGM Grand Canyon?

I know it doesn't stand for much, but please, don't give em any more ideas.

Everything will be named after prescription medications. The Viagra Washington Monument.. If it comes to this, I hope everybody follows Ozzy's lead and pisses on all of them.

We already sell corporate branding of publicly-financed projects like stadiums. Landmarks probably wont be far behind.

I will sell DC! They can even take it home with them, and all the cronies that work there; it's a great deal and we will even throw in a few fat-cats too!

How about the "Ford Lincoln Memorial".
"Comedy Central Park"
"Eveready Everglades"

But seriously. This has already begun here in the US with not so famous public holdings.
For instance roadways for sale.

All these huge sports arenas that were built with public subsidies are now sporting corporate logos, so that for instance the Oakland Coliseum is now the Oracle Arena
