  • A New Deal For Greece [View article]
    The people of the Czech Republic are proud people, too. But they cheat less and work more.

    Pride comes from achieving, not believing.

    Of course the people of Greece must endure hardship now. They have voted for such outcome since the end of Papadopoulos and they have voted for it again yesterday.

    What do you think the hard working people of Poland, Czech Republic or Hungaria went through after 1989?

    Why should Norwegians, Swedes, Danish and Finnish taxpayers happily fund what has always been essentially a failed state, their own countries being industrious with a smaller population than Greece?

    What do you think Lithuanians, Estonians and Latvians think about a free pass for Greece after having lived through 70 years of Soviet oppression, their homelands falling to waste in industrial gloom, now having pulled themselves out of the quagmire, becoming more prosperous every year?

    1974, 1981, 2015 - three strikes and you are out.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece Votes 'No' - Now What? [View article]
    Well observed. The Chinese administration, tinkering with this and that almost on a daily basis by now, seems to have lost direction. This I find worrisome.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece Votes 'No' - Now What? [View article]
    For decades, since 1974/1981, the Greek electorate voted for cronyism and nepotism, to be financed by the EWG, EC and EU.

    Yesterday, the Greek electorate voted for going it alone, chopping off the helping hands, to regain "dignity" from the "oppression" of the German "terrorists" that transferred billions in aid and development funds to Greece - via the EWG, EC and EU - since 1974/1981.

    Now Greece can handle its economic affairs on its own and seek financing for its new course outside Europe, while all other EU nations can concentrate on more pressing issues and get back to work.

    All is well, a true win-win situation.

    "Greeks are not unwilling to pay."

    Of course they are unwilling... to 1. pay and to 2. reform - since decades.

    Since 1974 (Karamanlis) or 1981 (joining the EWG), depending on your assessment frame, Greeks have voted for: cronies, nepotists, oligarchs and a free lunch with big honey pots for all. Now, they have voted against "imperialists", "oppression" and "terrorists", voted for a motley crew of feel-good amateurs, poseurs and worse. If Greece wants to self-destruct in "dignity", it is the electorate's democratic prerogative.

    Good luck to them.

    The sacking of Liu Jun was the sell signal, not the buy signal. The LNVGY massacre will continue, helped by China's predicament.

  • Greek tensions weigh on markets; Varoufakis resigns [View news story]
    Chief Excutive Hooligan Varoufakis has no reason to complain.

    From his first day in office - from showing his pinkie to calling European politicians terrorists - he has been a loose cannon, trolling his hard workin peers all the way.

    No need to shed a single tear over him.

    At least, chief hooligan Varoufakis resigned to return to academia where his dignity will be restored by his gullible flock of Amazon students.

    Greece should not have joined the EWG in 1981.

    Citizens should not keep voting for governments that, decade after decade, since 1974, sink foreign aid and development funds into the pockets of cronies, nepotists and oligarchs.

    All else is Bravo Sierra.

    Iceland never introduced the Euro and never was a member of the EU; hence it never left.

    "Where is the discussion of Greece's excessive pension program, of its ineffective tax structure, of the spiraling dependence on government spending to keep the economy even slightly stable?"

    Exactly.

    "Unfortunately I think we'll see a European Argentina. If they don't get their act together, a European Venezuela."

    Spot on.
