    I do find it interesting that Germany seems to be directing the creditors. There seems to be some real resentment on that side of the fence, but that may be just the media slant in the reports I’m reading. I absolutely agree the average Greek isn’t at fault and is the one suffering. The images of pensioners queing up for nothing is painful. And yeah, I did read that the pension system is a large support of the average citizen. So as much as someone not living that nightmare can get it, I do get it. Here’s where I digress though.

    First, I can’t fault the Banks for wanting repayment of a loan they made. That was the deal that was made. The Greek government knew they were taking out those funds and were presumably the ones that spent them upfront.

    Second, if the banks are the ones to take it on the chin, they won’t be the only ones who suffer. And not just in the short term. Do you think Greece is going to get a loan again anytime soon? And what about other nations in similar straits? Honestly I don’t think it will be long before those nations may be America or other European countries. So solutions need to be long term and benefit not just the Greek people but help set a precedent when it’s our turn to drink from that trough.

    I won’t presume to think I know how Greece’s problems should be solved. But I don’t think either the plans by the Creditors nor Syriza answers those problems. There has to be a way to restructure the debt so not everyone comes out a loser, especially Average Joe Greek.

    I have to ask: if bailout funds were used to pay foreign banks, was it because Greece had taken out large loans from them? And if so, what was the money from those loans used for? I’m not sure I saw anything in the article which convinced me the other countries banks were crumbling or that Greece is blameless in all this. I believe their debt does need to be restructured and they need to be given some relief certainly. Their creditors need to give some leeway. But Greece needs to make some concessions as well.

    The analogy only holds true as long the person going into debt got there because of circumstances beyond their control. That’s not really the case here. Greece got where it was through years of bad management, corruption, and a pension system which encourages people to retire early and make money in a shadow market that’s untaxed. I’m not saying that there aren’t many Greeks who aren’t being caught in the crossfire here. But part of that blame rests on them empowering a system that put them there. It also has to be pointed out that the creditors were not unwilling to compromise to some extent. Syriza hasn’t acted in a manner that’s really all that becoming either. ( http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/01/us-eurozone-greece-negotiations-specialr-idUSKCN0PB4QK20150701 ). This isn’t really an ‘evil banker steps all over the poor’ narrative. This is a story of incompetent management on the Greek side and power mongering on the German side.

    It took me to realize that the onlooker is supposed to be dressed in clothes from that era. I thought it was just a woman.

    The problems that have led to the Greece of today occured under both right and left controlled governments. You can’t blame it all on the lefties.
