Silver linings

Greece currently finds itself the recipient of an increasing amount of kudos and positive assessments by its partners and creditors, foreign investors and even major rating agencies with regard to the country’s progress.

There are those who underestimate the importance of this positive psychological climate and insist that this has absolutely no impact on the lives of the unemployed and the so-called new poor.

They are wrong.

Surely no one should expect miracles to happen in the space of two or three months. Nevertheless, the fact that Greece is no longer a pariah in the world of global investment and that major funds are investing in the country demonstrate that the prospects of recovery and the creation of new jobs exist.

Equally noteworthy is the fact that for the first time in three years, a sense of optimism is palpable in the market. Let us take advantage of this mood, instead of moaning.
