Can someone please define "PARALLEL CURRENCY" in this context?

Perhaps. The first thing I thought of when I read the title of the article was "KGB agitprop".

The euro is like a commatose patient, who suffers major heart disease, MS, all types of known and yet to be discovered cancer, has had all four limbs amputated and is blind as a result of diabetes, has a raging case of neurosiphillis....and has just been diagnosed with full blown AIDS....and health insurance just ran out.
Rossiya, in an act of compassion, is about to shoot the poor bastard in the head to put it out of its misery.
Set the eurosheeple free!!!!

It means that Greece as access to both Euro and Geuro but that its pegged one to the other under ECB control for FIRST but not the second. 

The economic team behind Merkel is now running the shooting match in Eurozone. The blond lady from the Bundes economic team (I don't know her name) is really hot and intelligent!

The former Yugoslavia had parallel currencies in the late 90's, but their Dinar was allowed to freely float with the Deutsche Mark.

Some countries in the Balkan still use parallel currencies. I think it is Albania. Looks like the Greeks finally copied something from the developed world.

That's easy. The bankers/elite will get one currency that is debt free and retains its value. The people will get another currency that is stuck with all of the debt and inflates. They will both initially have the same face value so as to make the swindle easier to palm off.

Maybe it means a New Drachma with an exchange rate of 1:1 with the euro.

Although I imagine that the parallel-ness would last no more than about three nanoseconds on the first trading day thereafter.

A couple of types of contracts need to be moved to Drachme :
Employment contracts
Internal trade

A couple of types of contracts need to stay in Euros :
Bank deposits

(Of course with a depreciating Drachme this means lots of people will start defaulting on their loans, but that's what needs to happen any way.)

HA! Spot on. And we already know who Thor is right? He left his buggy 'n goats to throw lightning at Athens from Mount Olympus. So now the interesting question is, who is Odin.......or should we rather say Ochin?

A parallel currency?  The orthdox rouble.  Greece, Russia, and Serbia can all get on one common currency and then take back constantinople.

Prelude to WW III.  Russia, CHina, and defecting Euro states vs. TBTF banks, err I meant US, UK, Germany, & France.  Throw in the Middle East and the mix is exponentially more volatile.

Explains Euro rising, dollar dying.  The BRICs are going to support the non-Euro worthy nations and a two-tier system to rip europe apart - not the dollar.  DUH.  How long until WWIII?

So Americans...with their 25 wars since WWII - history, are still thinking it will be the "
"bloody, barbaric Europeans" who will start the WWIII?! That is some serious mental disorder right there!

It is like a drunk, wife-beating neighbour saying, watch out that 70 year old Miss Marple, she is one mean SOB!
