Instead of cutting government spending, the first thing the Greeks did was raise taxes on the private sector (typical IMF prescription). I have no sympathy. Love the Greeks, but I have no patience for socialists. When a whole country seems to be happy to be working for the government, the effects are predictable.

Socialists never think that the producers and the entrepreneurs will just get up and leave taking their money and jobs with them.

Socialist truly believe that it is ALL their money and assets to spend how THEY see fit. After all, they know what is best.

That they are doing you a FAVOR to keep some of your own money.

John Galt them.

They were definitely not going to go to France or the US, places where success gets punished the most

Hard to be sympathetic....they’ve been living on credit for generations and now the creditors want to be paid.....and the “takers” are now outraged. I see it coming to the USA.

First things first. When the largest company in your country is a soda bottler, you are at the bottom of the pit looking up already. So now what is the largest company?

If their biggest business is a soda bottler, there must not be much there. Heck, Mexico can do better!
