At least that's the underlying argument behind a move being considered by hedge funds that have bought Greece's debt:
Hedge funds… [are considering] suing Greece in a human rights court to make good on its bond payments.
The novel approach would have the funds arguing in the European Court of Human Rights that Greece had violated bondholder rights, though that could be a multiyear project with no guarantee of a payoff.
You almost have to admire the absolute, graceless cynicism and depravity of a strategy like this. There's a refreshing honesty about a move this openly crass.
On the other hand, it IS a logical extension of the idea that corporations are people.
