Comments on: Greek rebound is astonishing http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/2014/04/08/greek-rebound-is-astonishing/ Mon, 18 Apr 2016 14:55:08 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: klausz http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/2014/04/08/greek-rebound-is-astonishing/comment-page-1/#comment-783 Fri, 18 Apr 2014 05:44:02 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/hugo-dixon/?p=783#comment-783 When Greece joined the Euro around the year 2000 they had not only faked statistics. If they would have reported the real figures they would have never joined the Euro.
Now a lot of people are unemployed. A lot of people have left their country. It seems nearly all the politicians they can vote for, are politically corrupt.
They have nearly not made reforms. What they have done is selling gouvernment property like infrastructure whats makes life for the Greek people even more expensive in the future.
The reform controller from the EU say there were changes in Greece. Mainly its a lie because they want to keep their jobs who makes them important.
As long the Greek people have not sent their Gouvernment away (a kind of revolution is necessary) this country will keep corruption and there will be no progress.

Greece CANNOT compete with the Euro as it’s currency. It will be a matter of time before it must go back to it’s own currency. How can this country have the same currency as Germany and a stronger currency than the USA? It defies all economic premises.

And that’s saying a lot, given the competition.

Maybe that Golden Dawn has a chance of bringing down a regime, and starting the Greek people down the path of taking their country back.

Greece can take on more debt!
Green shoots! Grecovery! All is well!
Well 27 percent unemployment or whatever, who cares? The bankers and international speculators are happy, and that, as we know, is what counts.
This Dixon guy is the among the sorriest apologists of the international fraudster banksters writing today, and that is saying something.
Finance is supposed to serve economies, not the other way around, but one would never know that with hacks like this guy doing the rentiers’ cheerleading for them.

It is trully a nightmare. Don’t swallow everything that is propagated by the Greek government. It is based on fake data

Fourth, the trumpeted supposed primary surplus of the Greek budget comes not only through extensive over-taxation, but also through the govt delaying to pay obligations to suppliers, providers, contractors etc.It’s entirely an accounting feature, not real primary surplus. And if you count the payments to finance the public debt, our country still has a good old Deficit. The exact numbers are public and can be accessed by anyone. So, we have a deficit, one of the largest and growing public debts in the world, a recession and a divestiture climate, and yet you call us an astonishing rebound. Excuse me, but if you had lived in Greece during these last years, you would get the opposite feeling. A feeling of free-fall.

There has been no real track record of reform by any government since the first bailout. Youth unemployment may be a permanent feature in Greece for a very long time. Politics is indeed a risk, but the specter of Syriza trying to form a government is hardly the most fearful outcome to the next national election. If you are worried about an “investor friendly” government you had better hope Golden Dawn does not fare well or, even worse, that partisan fighting does not break out in the street. You might see my book “Still at Aulis: Essays on Crisis and Revolution in Greece and the Eurozone,” for further analysis.
