Leave or stay, the Greeks have to efficiently grow their economy for anyone to do well. That is why I am disappointed that the Greeks and their creditors did not focus more on getting and rewarding growth. Moreover, greater attention should have been given to specific Greek problems instead of just the usual macro/money solutions. The only area where I am where specific attention was given is the corrupt tax system. However, things like tapping the pool of employed, some of whom are skilled and well educated, apparently were never discussed. Funding small business expansion, creating synergistic partnerships with other European companies, and supplying technical help to Greek companies also received little attention. The list is things to do is much bigger, but the point should be clear. Get Greece growing and both the Greeks and their creditors can win; turn the Greek economy into a moralistic lump of coal and everybody loses.

This is just another example of the weakness of the left. They have irrational fears and mostly they fear hard work. They prefer to have someone save them and take care of them. By the way, don’t equate the left with liberalism, the left is not liberal. They are just as hateful and conniving and controlling and greedy as conservatives. The difference between the two is really only a function of who they both manipulate to get power.

Should Greece stay in the Euro, or leave? Because those are the only two choices the Greek people had. Two very bad choices.

What is your articles point? That Greece should stay in the Euro and try to save its way out of debt (impossible), or should they leave the Euro (poverty)???????
