  • Greece sends reforms before deadline [View news story]
    Yes, I know, there is plenty of negative rhetoric that is insulting in nature, and not the least bit productive, including but not limited to frequent statements like "The #$& EU did it", "Bloodsucking Germans did it", "400 years of Turkish rule did it", etc.

    I totally agree with you that insults are counter productive.
    The Eurogroup's current hard stance with Greece proved that the other 18 Eurozone member countries do not like to be insulted either, and that insults backfire on the insulting party.

    Best of luck to you with your investments.

    Sir, I would expect you to tell the difference between "Greek bashing" and "mentioning how ridiculous were the Greek social security, pensions, public employment & benefits, and tax collection systems that bankrupted the state of Greece".

    Borat has always been there, in charge of the departments of Social Security & Pensions, Public Payrolls & Benefits, Tax Collection, and Friendly Relations with Allies.

    Executive summary:

    -No early retirement for Greeks.
    -No cancellation of the Greek privatization projects that've been tendered already.
    -No money from the Troika (Oops, "the institutions") until they approve the Greek commitments.
    -No victory for the new government.

  • Tsipras declares victory [View news story]
    There is debt to invest in projects with financial return, and, there is debt to spend on the government's current expenses like having a quarter of the population on public payroll and granting them pension at the age of 50.

    Just like good cholesterol and bad cholesterol.

    Greece's debt is bad debt; the kind that causes first a stroke and then paralysis.

  • What Can You Expect From A Greek Exit From The Euro? [View article]
    You are still not telling us how Greece, whether in the EU or not, in the EZ or not, will work its way up to Germany's level of wealth or success.

    p.s.Your keyboard's Caps Lock key is stuck.

  • Examining North Atlantic Drilling's Risk Of Bankruptcy [View article]
    Ultima70,
    I am trying to learn from your experience and knowledge.
    I understand from your comments in the past 3 months that you are advising the investors to stay away from Seadrill, NADL, SuperCom, Xinyuan, PlugPower, LiqTech, Civco, Frontline, Leapfrog,...... to mention the most recent.
    Are there any companies that you are actually invested in and you would recommend for others here on SA?

    Thanks.

    No more "Troika".
    From now on there is only "The EU, the ECB, and the IMF", also known as "The Troika".

    This is an executive summary of the "Victory" that's been declared by Tsipras The Great. I suggest that every public servant in Greece be given 4 additional days of paid holidays and a 14th salary on the occasion of this latest victory.

    "Germany started her strong economy when all her debts were writen of in 1953 so why not for Greece....."

    Why not? Because Greece is not Germany, that's why.
    A country can (Greece) not build a strong economy with one member in every family on public payroll for retirement at the age of 50.

    In fact, Greece isn't even a Slovakia, Slovenia, Czechia, Estonia, or Latvia; each and every one of which being in much better economic shape than Greece.

    Greece can not be a BRICK when its own house is collapsing due to weak foundations, poor architecture, and mediocre brick laying.

    And, to finish on a double positive note:

    Where would they go in the event of a exit? Nowhere! They know it.
    Greeks will always prefer being broke and part of the EU/EZ over being broke and not part of the EU/EZ.

    "There's also the risk that Greece might turn into Venezuela or something along those lines".

    Greece, in a way, has always been Venezuela-ish, where leaders tell the nation that there are threats, hostilities from abroad and the majority of the nation believes it gladly when the real enemy is actually within.
