Nils I just wanted to make clear that is not Greece that are saved but the big banks of europe and the whole Europe..because of what you said..I think both are saved. If all banks defaulted, Greece wouldn't be in good shape, either. In fact, there would probably be a civil war for power and food. If you think the current economic crisis is bad, what do you think it will be like when nobody can get any more money from the banks, and the money runs out, and the food runs out, because nobody has an incentive to import food anymore?
After Greece would be Portugal and then Spain and then Italy, it would start a domino of bankrupt..
Although as Greek I want to inform you and your readers,in case they don't know, that Greek people have the lowest wages by far in europe..all the money greece is missing are stolen money from illegal business our politicians had with corporations.Nobody questions that many Greek politicians, and bureaucrats are corrupt. But that's really the Greeks' fault. I can't do much about it when they elect the wrong guys again and again for decades.
In conclusion Greece has one of the lowest debts in Europe..Italy have a Debt almost ten times more than Greece. The reason they attacked Greece is that our politicians "wanted to be attacked" and they managed to succeed this with purpose.Erm, you need to look at debt per GDP. It makes no sense to look at absolute debt. Italy is the third biggest economy of the Euro zone, of course they have more debt. They have more people and these people, on average, produce more valuable goods/services.Thus they have an easier time repaying the debt.
Germany, actually has a little more debt than Italy in absolute terms, but there are more Germans and on average they produce more valuable goods/services. Thus, Germany is probably not going to default anytime soon. Another reason is that, in a shared effort, Germany's parties put a paragraph into the constitution a few years ago that demands a balanced budget. And so far all parties seem very serious about it.
The reason is that if our people is fall to unemployment and hungry, they can do some things without having opposition..they want to sell greece in the 1/100 of the real price and to show us this as a solution to our problems..I think that is a conspiracy theory of yours. I don't think it is possible to plan something like this, even if a majority of the politicians wanted to.
Nevermind, my purpose wasn't to offend you, if you watched the news you would see million greeks on the streets trying to throw away of the country the thiefs politicians. And the Eyrope know very well that they are thiefs, but as I said they do business with them, they sell submarines, airplanes, e.t.c.I saw that and I symphatize. But what next? If the Greek people presented to the EU a new government + bureaucracy with new and trustworthy people that are not going to waste our money, the EU would love to help you with the revolution. I'd go on the streets for that here in Germany. The problem is that you don't have an alternative.
Let's assume you do a revolution and throw your politicians out of the country. .. Then what? Will the new politicians be better? Why?
