Greece: 'There's no more left to cut'


www.independent.co.uk

That's enough, we can't take it anymore." That was the popular chant coming from protesters in Athens yesterday during the latest 24-hour general strike against the country's austerity measures. Teachers and doctors joined bank employees to demonstrate against a new round of expected cuts as the cash-strapped country continued to negotiate new reductions in spending to help keep the economy afloat.

When the money that the IMF is lending to Greece is being used to pay for bad investments/gambles made on government bonds it is not helping the Greek people at all. The austerity seems to be hurting the country more than it is helping. It only seems to help those that dont want to take a haircut on their gambles. I read a report of Greek health workers occupying a hospital today. Nothing in MSN about it. I think all greeks need to occupy and take back their country. They need to force a default and tell the IMF mafia to [SNIP] off.

In Greece, all employees are effectively paid their annual income in 14 instalments: twelve payments every month; one payment at Christmas (equivalent to a month’s salary or 25 days’ pay), and a half payment at Easter and summer (each equivilant to a half-month’s salary or 15 days’ pay). In recent weeks, the 13th and 14th salaries have come in for special attention in the world’s press, .

The 14th salary works like this: Greek workers get their annual salary in roughly 14 installments. On top of 12 monthly payments, employees receive double their paychecks in December, right in time for Christmas consumerism. They also receive half of their monthly spending in the spring to shell out on goods for Easter. Then they get another half-salary boost in July, before their traditional summer vacation. But the 14th salary system isn't the problem with the Greek economy, says Elias Papaioannou, an expert on international economics at Dartmouth College, "it's just an alternative way to distribute."

13th and 14th is good for the economy. You want them to have only enough for basic needs?

Yeah the Krugman shills say that austerity is bad while at the same time they say that Greece shouldn't spend too much.

What Greece should do is default and go back to the drachma.

I agree.

Forget the haircut.

We need to shave their heads with a very sharp razor.

Inflating debt and then plundering people. That's called "reprogramming debt"

Greece needs to default, arrest the politicians and banksters that brought her to this mess and try to do what Iceland did.

The Greek people are not in debt, the Illuminati installed government is and they need to be tried in a court of law of the land.

Germany and France can go and get farked. When Germany was wheel-barrowing its worthless cash in the 20s and 30s and then started a murderous war in the 30s which killed 70 million people, Greece forgave them their debts after the war to rebuild. All this despite Germany stealing 70 billion dollars of Greek gold and murdering 700,000 Greeks.

GREECE DEFAULT NOW! DO IT! DO IT NOW! (Taken from Arnie’s quotes.)

This is a quite startling discussion which may surprise you !
He had a spat with Nigel Farage but the way I see it you have to enter the lions den of European Parliament
in order to undermine it from the inside !
So for that reason I applaud Farage !
Noakes explains though why we are in the state we are and why the people of UK and other nations
will NEVER get a referendum on the membership of the EU !

There is nothing left to cut, Greece needs to default, both options lead to total collapse, but by defaulting they at least can start again now, although it will take years, rather than be enslaved to the IMF, BIS and the rest of the Global Mafia and then have to default anyway.
The issue with Greece is like pretty much all of Southern Euro countries, they have nothing to offer the EU as a whole! That is no disrespect, but they had nothing in the first place, they should not have joined. What inflation rate works for productive powerhouses like Germany, will be nothing but hell for countries that have nothing but a real estate bubble and a fig farm! Greece was running at 100% debt to GDP in 1995! Somebody should be hung for producing the figures that allowed Greece entry in to the Euro and somebody else for not questioning them! What all these countries have done is to sign their people's collective death certificate and it's a long hard road out of Hell. Greece must now choose economic enslavement, or economic collapse which will happen after a run of economic enslavement anyway! France and Germany don't want Greece to bail because of the affect on French and German banks, mainly French, but the Greeks cannot win this, there is no way out, no amount of money will fill a black hole. Italy and Spain will follow, whatever happens, Southern Euro countries are all on borrowed time. I feel sorry for the general public, but what applies for the individual applies to nations, we cannot continue to spend what we don't have. Britain and America are the same, but we have a money printing press, helps billions, literally! Don't worry about debt, inflation, deflation, do-not-make-sense BOE and Fed figures and forecasts, PRINT PRINT PRINT! What a mess! But yeah, Greece is well done for!
