The Future of Greece Without Illusions

Greece and Other Musings On July 4th - Paul Craig Roberts

If you become stuck in a boring July 4 hot air speech, distract yourself with this question: Are the values that Western civilization allegedly represents still extant? You don’t need to get heavy into philosophy. See if you can find any of the professed values reflected in current events.

Greece Faces New Kind of Coup

According to the Financial Times, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sent a letter to the three major money lenders saying he is ready to accept almost all the conditions proposed by the country’s international creditors at the weekend, marking the latest attempt to keep Greece in the eurozone. The Prime Minister said he would accept all of the terms proposed with just minor exceptions. He agreed to the changes in the country’s value added tax system but asked to keep a special 30 percent discount for the Greek islands untouched...

Russia has enough gas for everyone

The June 26 speech by Alexey Miller, the chairman of the board of Gazprom, at the annual general meeting of shareholders proved to be a cold shower for all those who hoped that Russia would pull out of Europe’s gas markets. Despite the fact that much of his report was devoted to Gazprom’s operations in the Russian Far East, the data Miller provided confirmed that Russian gas will not be squeezed out of Europe’s energy balance. Moreover, in the coming years Russian gas supplies will continue to play a steadily larger role in ensuring European energy security...

The Birthplace (Greece) v. the Farce (the United States) of Democracy

Democracy is among other things the rule of majority public opinion. Plutocracy is the rule of the wealthy few over and against the popular majority. To understand the different meanings of these two terms, you can consult a dictionary. You can also look at the very different decision-making processes on display regarding major political-economic policies in Greece (the ancient homeland of the Western democratic ideal) and the United States (the self-declared homeland and headquarters of contemporary democracy).

Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System: Problems and Prospects

It is widely believed that the Ukrainian gas transmission system has the greatest capacity in the world to make the owner a full-blown global actor. It’s partially true if one forgets that the system is supplied with Russian gas extracted many thousands of miles away from the Ukrainian border to be transported through long-distance routes...

The bank holidays in Greece are no holiday at all

The history behind the familiar concept of the European “bank holiday” dates back to 1871, when the Bank Holidays Act was passed in the United Kingdom. It established four days each year when banks would be closed. Typically those days fell on major religious holidays. By the end of the nineteenth century, bank holidays had become a familiar part of life in the UK and Commonwealth countries - they were also considered unofficial national holidays in Ireland and then the custom spread to continental Europe in the twentieth century

Europe Suffocating Under Pressure of Refugee Flows: Is There a Way Out?

Europe is hit by waves of refugee flows coming from the Middle East and North Africa, especially Libya. Italy is hardest hit. The aggravation of problem was prompted by the UK-France aggression. Italy did not take part in the operation against Libya though Paris and London called on Italians to demonstrate “European solidarity” and join the combat...

Tragic History of XX Century and Crisis Faced by Greece

The whole world is closely watching the situation unfolding in Greece. This country may become a trigger to start a chain reaction leading to the collapse of united Europe. A default on public debt (exceeding 320 billion euros) will be followed by a default of Greek bonds holders. Nobody can make a forecast to predict the economic and political consequences...

St. Petersburg International Forum: Story of Great Success

The 2015 International Economic Forum (SPIEF) has gone down in history as an unprecedented success story.

The figure does not include agreements kept away from public as commercial secrets. The event was attended by the delegations from 120 countries...

India’s passage through Central Asian steppes needs rethink

The steppes of Central Asia give away their secrets only grudgingly. The deserving ones have to convincingly show their capacity for persistence and tenacity – and, of course, sheer audacity. That was how Genghis Khan succeeded in conquering Bukhara...
