Umbrella Union: 10 myths about Greece and the crisis
December 14, 2011
Nick Malkoutzis from kathimerini.gr
For much too long, this crisis -- which Europe now unanimously admits is a systemic one -- was approached as if it was a symptom of the failure of one country: Greece. Rather than treat Greece as the weakest link in a chain that would be tested to its limits, the eurozone chose to view it as the font of all Europe’s woes. The fact that a more comprehensive strategy to tackle the euro’s weakness is now being sought is tantamount to an admission that the wrong strategy was adopted.

Sooner or later the hostages will be released.

Christopher Hadzopoulos - President of the French-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce | RepowerGreece.com
I often feel the Greeks have been hostages. This does not refer to any kidnapping but one can argue that for the last 30 years Greece and the Greeks were in fact the prisoners of a mindless, inefficient, uncontrollable bureaucracy. In dealing with ordinary citizens, those employed in the administration and the public sector at large more often than not, displayed an almost sadistic behavior.
