Russia is offering 5bn Euro, where is China?

Postby tsukoui » Sat Oct 06, 2012 1:03 pm

And we can't even beat the Japanese at tennis.

I don't understand this troika business. The Russians are offering a loan to recapitalize the banks. The troika seem to think we need more for the economy. They are willing to give it with strings attached. What is going on?

Are you serious? Our Politicians could economise their way out of a wet paper bag, and you ask this.

Seriously, sometimes drastic measures need to be seen as coming from an outside source so that the current government/management are not seen as the bad guys. Its a typical company ploy when they want to make shavings and savings and even job losses.

Don't they teach you anything over there???

My economics is all one sided. I understand what's wrong with capitalism but I don't understand how to manage capitalism. The Chinese seem to be doing a good job in that respect, but they don't want to help us. Why?

Are they doing worse than Russia?

Is it not just that we are not attractive enough?

Cyprus's economy devastated by the Turkish invasion of 1974 soon recovered magnificently and was commended and regarded by many as a miracle. It will recover again, we have a brilliantly capable Finance Minister in Vasos Shiarlis, a man I got to know well way back in the early 70s, his brother, also a brilliant Economist, Tony Sharlis, both born in Trikomo, lived with me and my family while studying in London for seven years. I know that Mr Shiarlis is adequately and educationally equipped to lead Cyprus out of its economic difficulties. We did it before under far more strenuous circumstances we shall do it again.

So....great Finance Minister.....but Cyprus in great recession.....needing for financial help....Smth its quite unclear here....It sounds that your Finance Minister is not that great one if your Country is now in financial needs...
But should be a good idea not receive any money from outside...and count only on this great man....and leave these money going to other Countries, not so selfish as Cyprus..

Sadly, Cyprus is now embroiled in the EU/€uro nightmare and her finances are largely beyond her control.
