Griechenland: Το βίντεο της ημέρας!!!!


σχόλιο Vuvuzela: Η Ελλάδα σε κρίση. Ανεργία, αβέβαιο μέλλον, αδιέξοδος, απόγνωση. Η Γερμανία ασκεί πίεση για τη ‘σωτηρία’ της χώρας. Όλα κρέμονται απο μια κλωστή. Ο κόσμος περιμένει με κομμένη την ανάσα, και τότε ….

Griechenland is a short film about the Greek Crisis. 

The economic crisis has hit Athens, Greece the hardest. While Germany keeps adding pressure, everything seems frozen and ready to collapse. However, there is one man who feels differently.

Greece’s PSI is Dead on Arrival: An error in search of a rationale but also a failure that may prove a harbinger for the Modest Proposal


A brief history of Greece’s PSI

In the beginning there was Wholesale Denial. Then the Denial began to subside under the weight of circumstances. It did so slowly, agonizingly so, with the result that, in the process, Greece lost any capacity it might have had to rebound. It also caused the Crisis to spread like a bushfire throughout the eurozone, turning liquidity problems into unyielding insolvencies first in Ireland, then in Portugal. Still, to this day, Denial is in the air. But it cannot remain intact, without the whole eurosystem crashing and burning. The Greek PSI may be the harbinger of denial’s end. If not, it is hard to see what will stop the juggernaut of the Crisis from destroying the few chances the euro has of survival.

Taking things from the top, the Wholesale Denial began life two years ago when imploding Greece was Συνέχεια

PSI: Μια απάτη που ψάχνει νομιμοποίηση


Του Γιάννη Βαρουφάκη

Σύντομο ιστορικό του PSI

Εν αρχή ην η Απόλυτη Άρνηση. Αργότερα, η Άρνηση άρχισε να υποχωρεί κάτω από το βάρος της Πραγματικότητας. Υποχωρούσε όμως βασανιστικά αργά με αποτέλεσμα, όσο πέρναγε ο χρόνος, η Ελλάδα να απολέσει την όποια δυνατότητα είχε να ανακάμψει προτού να καούν πολλά «χλωρά» μαζί με τα «ξερά». Οι αντοχές της Άρνησης της Πραγματικότητας οδήγησαν στην μεταλαμπάδευση της Κρίσης σε όλη την ευρωζώνη, μετατρέποντας προβλήματα ρευστότητας σε πτωχεύσεις αρχικά στην Ιρλανδία, αργότερα στην Πορτογαλία κ.ο.κ. Ακόμα και σήμερα, η Άρνηση καλά κρατεί. Ίσως όμως το ελληνικό PSI να αποτελέσει τον προάγγελο του τέλους της. Αν όχι, είναι πολύ δύσκολο να διακρίνει κανείς πως η ευρωζώνη θα επιβιώσει.

Ας πάρουμε όμως τα πράγματα από την αρχή. Η Απόλυτη Άρνηση ξεκίνησε πριν δυο χρόνια με εκείνο το Συνέχεια

Greece: we could exit euro in three months


New Greek government says creditors and lending troika must agree bailout terms within weeks otherwise ‘we are out of the markets’.

Order out of Chaos


Out of the wreckage, international bankers will rise as saviors. The bubble that will inevitably burst in Europe was engineered by a group, a clique, of private bankers in key positions.

Raising awareness is key, but not enough to change the situation. Governments have already armed themselves with an anti-riot arsenal worthy of any extravagant blockbuster action film, while the media has taken on the role of feeding propaganda to citizens.

Watch the video and spread the knowledge. Συνέχεια

Let Them Eat π


Yet another excellent article from Sturdyblog that steers away from the usual propagandist ranting of the media that is simply a tool in the hands of speculative bankers and other investor think tanks geared towards shaping public opinion to suit their needs.

The only regret I have when reading this gem is that punches were pulled. Papademos and Monti need to be seen as usurpers of democracy and their respective rise to power called coups d’état, plain and simple. Most important of all is the fact that people in Greece believe their country’s rising debt is not just 30-years’ worth of bad politics, corruption and inept members of Parliament — it’s been a methodical, calculated plan executed with preciseness, enabling the few to live off the many.

My firm belief is that this has been in the making for a long time. Greece practically hasn’t had a single patriot in office since WWII. Foreign interests influenced and still influence decisions to benefit everyone but us Greeks. Some saw the world as an orange, squeezing (half of it) as much as they could out of Third World countries — sorry, that would be developing countries to those who want politically correct euphemisms used to spice up slavery as an on-going evolutionary process towards development. Now that the orange is starting to shrivel, they’ve decided to pick up the other half by turning to Europe and as I foresee other developed countries and squeeze out the savings it managed to accumulate throughout the years.

Enjoy the read, and many thanks to the author for a very fine piece.

Some months ago I tried to explain that the crisis in Greece concerned the entire globe directly and that what was happening to my country was nothing short of an economic coup d’état.

The Death of Democracy and National Sovereignty in Europe


As Johan Van Overtveldt, the editor-in-chef of Trends magazine states, Greece is «condemned to go down in a vicious circle of more recession, more unemployment, larger government deficits or budget deficits and so an endless need of additional money to fill up the gaps.»

So why continue the loans? Why continue the Euro sham? Since Italy is next, and France’s banking system will follow suit, why fix something that already smells putrid?

Brussels will undoubtedly push the situation to its advantage and demand to step in at any time. Συνέχεια

Euro zone members seek tougher policing of Greece


(Reuters) – Some euro zone countries want a European Commission task force to be given extra powers to oversee the sale of Greek state assets and the country’s civil service under a far-reaching plan to tighten supervision of Athens, EU sources told Reuters.
