The Coercion of Greece

The Economist’s February 6 cover displayed the Venus de Milo statue pointing a revolver, with the headline “Go ahead, Angela, make my day.” In the editors’ upside-down world, Greece is threatening Europe, or at least Germany.  Really? On Monday, February 16, European officials “handed Athens an ultimatum: Agree by Friday to continue with a bailout program or risk the funding that the country needs to avoid a default,” the New York Times reported.

History In the Balance: Why Greece Must Repudiate Its “Banker Bailout” Debts And Exit The Euro

EDITOR'S CHOICE | 05.02.2015


 

Greece, the US and the Neo-Liberal Coup

Since the onset of economic calamity in the West beginning around 2007 ‘official’ response has been framed as modest successes with a few policy errors while the reality is of remote elites and their agents enacting punitive policies under the guise of material economic constraints. In this context the election of Alexis Tsipras and Syriza in Greece appears a radical left turn while the actual economic proposals under discussion appear to be the middle-of-the-road textbook economics that preceded the neo-liberal coup of the 1970s in the U.S. And while Mr. Tsipras has greater  understanding of this economics  and strategies of economic resolution than do the European and American leadership classes, the levers of resolution remain firmly with this (mis)leadership.

Germany between a rock and a hard place

We are only beginning to evaluate what SYRIZA’s victory may mean for the Eurozone. As a matter of fact, this victory is calling Germany’s bluff and forces into the open its double talk about the Eurozone. Yet, deprived as it is of room for manoeuver, Germany might react violently and indirectly provoke the dissolution of the Eurozone, even though it is presently its mean beneficiary. In order to make this understandable, we must here remember a few facts.

Brussels’ New Russia Sanctions Fuel for Eventual EU Bonfire

...Moreover, the leftwing Syriza government has denounced EU sanctions against Russia as baseless and has openly welcomed fraternal relations with president Vladimir Putin and Moscow. The inauguration of Alexi Tsipras as Greek prime minister also this week marks the election of the first EU government that is explicitly anti-austerity and vowing to repudiate the authority of Brussels. The European Council, led by former Polish president Donald Tusk, decided to extend travel bans and asset freezes on a list of Russia officials allegedly over the violence in Ukraine...

Can Greece Escape from a Situation Comparable to Dark Age? Yes, If Greece Realigns with Russia and Gains Financing from the BRICS

With only 37% of the vote, does Syriza have the clout to stand up for Greece against the looters? Can Greece escape from a situation comparable to the European Dark Ages when populations were ravaged by marauding raiders? Perhaps if Greece realigns with Russia and gains financing from BRICS.

A Soros «Trojan Horse» inside the New Greek Government?

...Although new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras... and the vast majority of his new Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) government have good left-wing and pro-labor credentials, the same cannot be necessarily said of the man Tsipras chose to be Greece’s new finance minister. Yanis Varoufakis is a citizen of Australia who was educated in Britain and worked as a professor at the University of Texas... Varoufakis’s curriculum vitae, reeks of George Soros-intertwined globalist links...

Greece: Meaningful Economic Reforms Could Come Through BRICS and Russia?

The sounds of champagne decorking and exuberant cheers among Syriza volunteers, supportive voters, and their struggling-but-comfortable socialist middle-class base within the intelligentsia and literati, could be heard across Athens’ cafes in the clean areas of town. Election results were finalized this evening in Greece, with a clear Syriza victory.

Greece Eurozone Exit Is In The Wind. Is it A Harbinger of EU Disintegration Process?

One of the issues to hit the news in early 2015 is the possibility of Greece leaving the eurozone, or, even, the European Union. German weekly Spiegel reported that Chancellor Angela Merkel now believed that the eurozone could cope with Athens leaving the common currency in case the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) wins the January 25 parliamentary election. Rejections followed (allegedly Chancellor Merkel said something else) but there is no smoke without fire. The Greece eurozone exit has been in the wind since a long time. On the one hand, it can remedy the eurozone economic situation. On the other hand, the very fact of such a possibility being discussed could be perceived as a harbinger of EU disintegration process about to kick off...

Where Europe Heads to? Harbingers of Political Storm

The daily routine has distracted the attention of ruling circles in Europe. They have failed to see in time the erosion of political order due to growing interference of EU supranational structures into the affairs of national states. The first warning was sounded during the May 2014 European Parliament election. Miscellaneous and sundry political parties united in their anti-EU drive received 30% of the votes. The Treaty of Lisbon was concluded in 2007 to replace the failed EU Constitutional Treaty. Since then it has become clear that the European integration is quite a reversible process...

Tony Blair and the Hidden Agenda of Serbian Policy

The appointment of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair as advisor to the head of the Serbian government, Aleksandar Vučić, has rocked the media. The Russian television channel RT referred to the decision as an attempt at the «political suicide» of the Serbian prime minister... The principle of running with the hare and hunting with the hounds is a bad principle. Attempts to have a foot in both camps have little in common with the art of diplomacy and rarely end well...
