Keeping investors away

Greece urgently needs foreign capital and investments. It should be clear by now that there is no magic recipe that can help the country create new jobs and leave the financial crisis behind.

All our neighbors are giving foreign investors the red carpet treatment. Meanwhile, the Greek champions of sterile rejectionism prefer to treat investors with rowdy protests.

Serious investors who want to put their money into Greece are already put off by political uncertainty, red tape and a dysfunctional judicial system.

They really don’t need the aggression of the most reactionary elements who are determined to see no change in this country, ever.
