Great idea!

The world should rally around the Greeks.

Get the Russians and Chinese involved to help them break the stranglehold of the wretched international bankers( those who did the 2007-8 depression and (thanks mainly to Obama) never got jailed for it.


I applaud the brave Greek people and would be glad to participate in helping them in their valiant war against the elite devils of this earth

Yes tax evasions happens in all countries to different degrees.

However Britain in not running to The European Central Bank for loans, is it?

Greece is.





Britain is not that far off guys.......Many other countries sit in this debt based fiat currency driven central banking controlled illusion of a free system.


Greece is just the slowest runner as the bear comes a chasing.......China is running pretty darn slow also.....

I will repeat it yet again. The Greeks caused their own problems




The International Monetary Fund and Greece’s other creditors have argued for years that the country’s debt crisis could be largely resolved if the government just cracked down on tax evasion.

This is like trying to pass RT, or CNN propaganda as truth, sure the creditors would say that!
There is a reason no Greek knew about the debt prior to 2011 when was the first bailout to the Greek banks
, the debt tripled since then, Since the IMF trying to ''s(l)ave '' Greece for the first time in 2011.

Coincidence again?
I know the propaganda spewed very well, I don't need a playback thank you...

They will, but consider - they also voted for the government social democracy that sunk them into this debt by trying to give them all those nice public sector perks they couldn't pay for.

Everyone was all for the party until the bills came due. Unless you can show me that the people had this done to them against their wishes with no votes on their part, then it is partially their doing over the long haul.

When the bill comes due for us, are you similarly going to deny we kept voting for the handout government?

From one of your own publications.




The shadow economy is a multifunctional economic and social phenomenon with serious consequences in many aspects of the everyday life (economic, political, social, etc.)

Oh.....Crap this could be bad for the worlds economies........This is bigger than any bank failure. I am not sure if they made the right choice or not.


Not really they make up only 2% of the EU economy.

They are insignificant really. Its only bad if Italy and Spain follow.

Search out independant Greek online traders and buy their products. Greek food is wonderful, greek wines and spirits are too. That way, you are supporting the people from grass roots up.

Economy size is a factor I agree........It matters how much of the debt can not be handled by the other countries banks. Also the rise of nationalism is always a risk in Europe.



But I do agree with your points.........Especially about Italy and Spain.

Laughable, completely laughable. The Tories don't agree with that sentiment, but they have focused on the welfare budget, which in total truth, unless they tackle the state pension, only the real needy are going to be affected. Still, their masters the IMF, are contented that at least something is being done in the U.K.

I am still awaiting to learn how they propose to deal with the good old tax evaders. I haven't even heard this question being asked by the MSM, but then maybe I haven't been watching the right programmes.

Ok yes I agree... and mine and your governments possible detestable abhorrence actions that we don't know about yet are also our fault.


Yeah, they are.


The big questions is do you call this morally justifiable?


Do I call what morally justifiable?


Then again morality isn't the main priority of our economy... right?


An economy is not capable of abstract emotions.

So you blame the average citizens for this.

The average individual has no power against the merchant/banker/big government complex.

And for those tax "evaders" --- well done !!

Why not fight fire with fire.

I am sure getting Russia involved with Greek debt will go over real well with the oligarchs. It is all pure posturing, they do not want the debt.

Source ?

I don't think that Russia can save Greece if Germany can't. Russia GDP/capita is lower than Greece, they have pensions 10 times lower than Greece and minimal wages about 3 times lower than Greece. I was just listening to someone talking in Russian talk show, he said imagine you have a productivity in Greece almost as bad as Russian and want to have pensions as Germany - this is impossible. On another russian site ( quite liberal pro-west) i seen a poll: do you sympathize (pity) with Greek people ? - the answer was over 80% - no. echo.msk.ru...
