… Greece is Now in Real Trouble [#the Euro]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,June 18th,2016

.. the I.M.F. walking out of talks is not good ..

.. but neither is giving Greece more debt in order to pay off previous debts . That just does not make any sense at all . Extending the maturities will not do enough …

.. You have to reduce the amount of principal , and , if possible , the interest rates , as well . Greece does not really merit a reduction in the interest rates , though . The principal reduction should do the job ..

… The ObamaCraps should Not Meddle [#Greece]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 16th,2016

.. those idiots in the ObamaCrap White House should know better . They have a hard enough time understanding our economy as it is . Now they are trying to meddle elsewhere . Yes , it is bound to get them into trouble …

.. the Europeans and Greece are having a hard enough time settling their own affairs as it is . The Euros keep piling more and more debt on the Greeks , instead of writing it off . The Greeks cannot pay what they have to pay now . one cannot expect them to pay more ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. yet the ObamaCraps are leaning on the Euro institutions and the I.M.F. . They want them to ” take it easy ” on the Greeks . That is hardly a way for the Greeks to pay off a manageable amount of debt , much less their current load . However , it is the Euros business to settle , not ours . It is not the place of the ObamaCrap White House and His Lordship to stick their noses in wheat is not their affair …

… Financial instability in the Banks is Going to Drive This [#Greece][#financial crisis]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 1st,2016

.. it is the instability of the financial system , and that of the banks , which is going to drive this financial crisis …

.. why ? the outflows from the banks . The banks cannot sustain this for very long . With that comes pressure on the Greek Government from ” behind its lines …”

.. [h/t — Reuters.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news post ..

.. the Euro carries a deep well of popular support . It is a great deal more than the Greek drachma ever has had . So , it is in the Greek Government ‘ s interest to eventually make a deal …

— [update] — that it did .. the crisis was eventually settled after a  couple of weeks , but at a high cost .. several major Greek banks collapsed as a result of this brawl … also , Syriza [Greece ‘  s  current governing majority party] may well have won a majority again at an  election , but they  have the task  now of reviving  the economy ..

.. the business community will not be happy with radical leftists at the controls . They will be the ones picked on by the government for tax revenue .. Well , the business will not  be too  cooperative with investment unless Syriza agrees to play ball on spending ..  the EU and the ECB should be of help …
