Well since i know a little bit of economy and the situation in Greece i can tell you that the argument with the electricity bill tied to taxes does not hold and can not be used to support your theory. This particular argument is flawed because in this country nobody was paying any taxes so they were obliged to come up with solution to collect tax revenue. www.vanityfair.com...
As for your thinking i consider it fairly logical. Although, i think that they don;t need a world wide scale of war. Take for example the war in Libya, as pointed out by some media UK, alone, on "invested" $500million (bombs, arms etc) will earn $300 billion in contracts to repair the damage that they have done to Libya (Libya pays of course).

As soon as people notice their pension funds and 401Ks have all been looted, we'll probably see our war.
