Keeping the waters calm

What Greece needs to get back on its feet is a period of calm and stability. The government is doing what it can to attract foreign investors and change the course of the real economy. The people are also doing their bit by showing maturity in the face of the critical situation that has also affected many other countries.

The opposition and a number of unions, however, are doing the exact opposite, by making extreme demands and stirring up society.

There is no point in the government fighting to bring investment to Greece and improve the country’s international credibility when these groups simply turn around and torpedo every effort toward an economic turnaround.

What they don’t seem to understand is that we are all in the same boat, and if it goes down, we all go down together. If they had understood this, then they would know that it will take calm waters and favorable winds to get this boat on the right course.
