I was referring to all the upheavals, including wars, occupations, etc. You have to account for a future where the Greek economy is suppressed for decades, especially since the public sector stands little chance of profitability with even its money winners sold off. Greece is thinking of selling off the lottery, for instance.

So, the question would be, how many would die over a few decades of poverty, versus how many died when Argentina's economy collapsed.
