Clear rules, for everyone

If we want to deal with the economic crisis, we need clear rules. A large number of individuals and businesses have amassed huge debts they cannot service. And some worrying symptoms have already been seen, such as businesses going bankrupt, only to return under a similar guise without paying off their debts to the state and suppliers.

People who are prompt about paying their loans and taxes feel chagrined by such phenomena. The state and the judiciary must be stricter in dealing with wrongdoing of this sort.

As for the infamous red loans, its clear that we need clear rules that apply to everyone. Those who risked their savings and made sacrifices to back their investment cannot be treated like those who have never taken a risk because they feel entitled to special treatment.

One of the reasons Greece went bankrupt was that neither the public nor the private sector operated in a rational manner with clear rules. This must be rectified before we can move forward.
