Comments on: Homeless in Greece http://blogs.reuters.com/photographers-blog/2013/06/06/homeless-in-greece/ What makes a great picture?

Who speaks for these people? Who represents their interests? This what the Global Elite want, a population forced to work in their private companies as wage slaves while they use “economies of scale” to outcompete any independent business entrepreneurs who do not join them. See the evidence around you.

They should find a way to enter other countries where they can have a fighting chance. I pray for quick recovery of Greece.

Where is the compassion in this world? I hope that we all remain lucky enough never to be in such a devastating situation and to never lose our families because of it.

I also know that very often, we receive back the treatment that we give, as I have often found myself apologizing for rude, condescending visitors in different countries I have visited. I must add that the majority of these ‘rude’ visitors have been Anglophones.

Please note, by the way, that the people referred to in this article were simple working people who probably never saw more than a 4 figure income. These are hardly the people that led a country to ruin. This is a case, as in most of the countries around the world, as I do not like to generalize, where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. And of course, the poor pay the piper.

I am one of those simple people who found themselves unemployed and had to leave my country for work elsewhere. I am currently in a country with what a westerner would call, deplorable conditions. However, I have adapted to and accepted this way of life and find myself to be loved by the locals and thankful to my hosts for providing me with a job when my own country did not. The recession is world-wide. Do not blame one country or one people for what is happening within.

maybe the guy was not paying his part of social security for his employees? it’s common in Greece to owe the social security funds when you’re an employer, because they were not very forceful in making you pay

Grecians have a culture that has long been proud of tax evasion. They are being rewarded for their arrogant foolishness.
The One Percenters Plutocracy everywhere has a culture of legalized tax avoidance that would be illegal tax evasion for the 99%, especially in the United States where people like Magical Myth are proud of their “carried interest” and accounts in foreign banks not subject to American taxes.

There may be a need for some Gandhian economics: do not import till you have enough money through exports. Basically, it means “buy local”, letting everyone participate in producing local goods. Otherwise, this could be you. The problem is that those who have not yet lost their jobs have a pidgeon mentality and think that it cannot happen to them.
Of course, local goods may not exist anymore. Old industries may have been entirely wiped out. So, there is need to start afresh.
In much of the world there are experiments with alternative money. Greece seems to be a case where this is becoming necessary.

Every cab took the long route, every restaurant bill was padded, and you never received the correct change. As the writer above mentioned, they lived above their means and expect someone else to pay the tab.

What does the IMF do, to rectify their “mistakes” and dumping millions in poverty?

Will the IMF assist Greece now? maybe they can give a bit of that caviar that they consume during their “meetings”.
