Protests leave investors cold

Any reactions or objections to privatizations and investments must be kept within boundaries: the boundaries outlined by the law.

No foreign investor is going to put their money in Greece if they knows that their investment will be jeopardized by extreme forms of protest such as sit-in demonstrations, roadblocks and firebomb attacks.

No country in the world tolerates this kind of behavior ? witnessed again this week during protests against the sale of the Dodoni dairy plant near Ioannina ? toward people and businesses that wish to invest their capital in the local economy.

The situation here calls for more determination on the part of the government and the state and, of course, greater self-control on the part of the opposition parties that seem stubbornly attracted to the charms of a quasi-soviet economic model.
