Grexit entered the financial vernacular in 2012, when the withdrawal of Greece from the eurozone was suggested as a viable solution to the country's debt crisis and there were calls from some quarters for a complete withdrawal from the EU. However, the Greek government rejected Grexit and continues to be a full member of both organizations.
