I had a vague idea why Greece is in the Crapper financially but this piece explained it very well
Cheers Comrades

    Yes, Phill’s article pretty much sums up the mess that is Greece and how they got there. But it doesn’t dig deep enough into the underlying reasons why a nation that is thousands of years old and the birthplace of democracy could get itself into such a malaise with rampant bludging and a massive and unsustainable public service and benefits scheme. I’d suggest it’s cultural and that over the years Greece has simply lost the motivation to work hard and produce. The way out for many might be immigration – it worked before when so many migrated to Australia post war and, mostly, they’ve done pretty well. Let’s face it, the country is stuffed and I’d suggest it’s almost beyond saving. Who do you blame? The Government? I think the saying “you get the Government you deserve” was tailor made for Greece.

  2. Simon says:

    I recently watched a BBC doco on their version of iView called “The Great Euro Crash”. That was really good too in trying to explain why there’s the mess there is, and while it didn’t promote any outcomes I can help think that it’s in Ireland, Spain, Italy, et al. to get out of the common currency might not be in their interest in the long-term, but short-term it would solve a few problems with by devaluing their own currencies.

  3. Damian says:

    GD’s anti-Islam post was both ignorant and offensive. I’m pleased you took it down.

  4. Iain Hall says:

    I took nothing down, not a single word.

  5. Damian says:

    So where is GD’s anti-Islam post called “this couldn’t happen here”?

  6. Iain Hall says:

    Anyone who is an author here has the right to add or remove their posts at their own discretion as I said earlier I have not “taken down” anything. That said I read the email notification of the post and I would love for you to explain just what you found so offensive.

  7. Damian says:

    As evasive, dishonest, and childish as ever. Nothing changes at the cesspit.

  8. Iain Hall says:

    I am being neither dishonest (because I did dot remove the post in question as you had claimed ), Nor am I being evasive because I was unaware that GD had put up a post or that he had decided to remove said post all before I rose this morning and I just stated the facts I took nothing down, not a single word. and as for “childish” Take a look in the mirror. You are being unreasonable to expect me to have knowledge of something that was both written and removed before I got out of bed this morning.

  9. […] The Greek Financial Crisis Explained (iainhall.wordpress.com) […]

  10. Ray Dixon says:

    Tell Media Watch, Damian. Put it on Twitter.

  11. Richard Ryan says:

    Tell CH.9 Current Affairs——giggle-giggle, or better still Andrew Bolt, he is a specialist on smearing Muslims, with a little help from his brown nosed bloggers.

  12. Iain Hall says:

    Now you can respond to the new improved version of the post Damian and explain why you think that criticism of Islam and Arabic culture and values is “offensive”.
