  • Soros: Greece "going down the drain" [View news story]
    Greece isn't an "idealized" entity such as a bank and its shareholders. It is a collection of individuals most of whom are suffering due to unnecessarily too stringent terms on loans ordinary Greeks don't even see, except the foreign banks. It's a vicious circle of the troika lending euros to Greece so they can then pass it back to Europe.

  • The National Bank Of Greece: A Risk Worth Taking [View article]
    I suppose ignorance is bliss hksche2000. Since Greece emerged from the seven years of military dictatorship in 1974, it has had only two coalition governments, in 2010 and 2012 due to the economic crisis. As far as what comprises the economy, yes 85% is service oriented and 12% industry with agriculture at 3%. Of course there's tourism, merchant shipping (16.2% of the world's total capacity, the largest in the world), and fisheries. Its economy was ranked 29 or 33 worldwide, larger than all the Balkan economies combined. oh yeah, and Greece was a founding member of the OECD.

  • Greek banks tumble following vote [View news story]
    the first sentence, although in some ways - without knowing the extent of the taxes that are being levied and the absurdity of them - true, is defamatory. Sentence number two is quite correct, though independent if the first.

  • Bearishness among heavy-hitter money managers surveyed by Barron's rises to 27%, nearly double the amount from April's poll. As for individual sectors, there's no love for the utilities, with just 1% of respondents picking it as the best-performing industry over the next 12 months, and 20% choosing it as the worst. We've given away the answer, but guess which is today's cover. Feel better, bulls? [View news story]
    I never have really understood the term "false gains". Having being invested in risk for most of 2012 and gained, I cannot come to terms with "false gains". 15% realized return for my modest portfolio was "true gains".

  • Set Long Positions Now Ahead Of ECB And FOMC Actions [View article]
    if you're talking about public sector wages in those countries, due to the corrupt political system of cronyism, then you are probably correct. But if you're talking about the private sector, you may be mistaken. Car mechanics with 30-year experience have been relegated to earning 12,000 Euros in some of the countries you speak of.
