Seems that his own countrymen are not pleased with him. After the support he had for a no vote, and then to go back and accept more EU shit, they are feeling betrayed.

I am suspicious of this sudden turn around. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but something stinks.

I suspect in 3 years time they will be in the same boat again, but owing billions more!

There is only ONE WAY out of this impasse for Greece and that is to create wealth.

Wealth is not created by governments, it is created by individuals who risk their capital and invest their know how unfettered by idiotic buraucrats.

It is a proven fact that in all economies the vast majority of employment is created and maintained by companies having less than 50 employees, ie the small to medium companies. In the USA 98 per cent of employment is provided by small business.

So there is the solution for Greece, allow, just allow, it does not even have to encourage, small business.

However, Greek politicians do not like small business, there is no possibility of deals with small businessmen. Small business cannot bribe on a grand scale.

Sorry, Nikitas - you are quite wrong in your assessment, again.

The number of small businesses in the USA is 19.98 per 1,000 people.

The number of small businesses in Greece is 69.94 per 1,000 people.

That's over three times greater in Greece!

Greece has more small businesses per capita - not just compared to the USA - but also more than Canada, Switzerland and many other European countries.

Back off Greece-bashing, just a little, hey? :wink:

How is it selective, troll? Those are the only nationmaster dates available - they are comparable with only one year difference 2003/4. Can you find more recent data? Or is trolling with stupidities your only resource?

Besides, Nikitas is talking about the cultural mentality towards small businesses and cultural mentalities do not change that quickly - from the comparable data available, we can clearly see there are over three times more small businesses, per capita, in Greece than the USA.

Your quoting irrelevant,selective and ancient data .It is 2015. Also its the recent political will to support small business not the culture of small business that was being discussed. But sorry to say it is pointless debating with you as you are stuck in some mythological fantasy land where all things Greek are wonderful. It must pain you to see Greece failing and people debating her demise. Thank God no one listens to the likes of you in Cyprus anymore as we would never have a chance to reunify our country.

Sure, and Greece should reform their public sector. Greek's public administration is like third world countries, for example Turkey.

How quickly you forget what Germany did to Cyprus' banks! :roll:

Anyway, considering what the Germans were demanding, Tsipras did pretty well to secure this deal:

Up to €50bn (£35bn) worth of Greek assets will be transferred to a new fund, which will contribute to the recapitalisation of Greek banks. The fund will be based in Athens, not Luxembourg as the Germans had originally demanded.
