Europe’s Last Act?
Joseph Stiglitz warns that forcing Greece out of the euro would make any future financial
crisis far worse.
Three questions :
1. Quote “Having said that, there is room for a deal: Greece has made clear its
willingness to engage in continued reforms, and has welcomed Europe’s help in
implementing some of them”unquote:
Question: Professor, if you were a creditor would you look at the performance of the
Greek government and felt assured that the reforms needed to turn Greece into an
“independent” country ( i.e. no need to continue living subsidized by the other EU
members = people ), will be implemented ? Honestly, does the track record of the
current government, leads you to believe the reform of the state and society, required
for Greece do be a “free” and “independent” country, will take place under the Syriza
Gov. ? Under a government that has shown no willingness – not to mention ineptitude
– to put a stop on the many vested interests ( from pensioners to oligarchs ), deeply
rooted and responsible for Greece maladies?
2. Quote “The future of Europe and the euro now depends on whether the eurozone’s
political leaders can combine a modicum of economic understanding with a visionary
sense of, and concern for, European solidarity” unquote.
Question: Can you please define “solidarity”?
Is it a one way and never ending road ?
3. Finally, please let us know if you really believe that FREEDOM is a free lunch? And
aren´t the Greek people entitled to be FREE ?
