The benefits of Greece regaining control of its currency,Guest Posting such as increased competitiveness, would outweigh the costs of leaving the eurozone and defaulting on its debt. A euro exit will be hard but watching the slow disorderly implosion of the Greek economy and society will be much worse.
The austerity measures that are being forced upon the country in exchange for more bailout money Yacht Rental Greece from the European financial authorities are setting it up for decades of pain. Greece will have 25-50 years of austerity and poverty, all this to remain in the eurozone where they hopelessly cannot compete. If they can’t compete why would they stay in the eurozone? It is all about Greek leadership and its connection to bureaucrats, bankers and others that demand their inclusion into European and World government.
The Greek bailout and debt deal agreed by European Finance Ministers is a farce, a program designed to pay Greece’s international creditors and buy time.
The reasoning is simple: the financial sector is trying to keep alive the illusion that Greece isn’t bankrupt, cleverly manipulating the fear that a Greek bankruptcy would trigger a fatal chain reaction in order to get paid. If a default was declared, the resulting payouts would start a chain reaction that would cause widespread worldwide bank failures, making the Lehman collapse look small by comparison.
Greece is indeed broke, and the reason why all the bailout money being thrown into the pot isn’t being used to foster competitiveness and help the country get back on its feet is because this bailout isn’t actually going to fix Greece: rather, it’s all about preserving the dream of a pan European nation state and outside financial interests.
