This is not a game

Greece’s negotiations with its partners and creditors must be conducted in such a way as to safeguard the country’s real economy, a vital sector which prior to the elections had appeared to be on the road to recovery.

The stability of the local banking system is equally crucial, because without that there is no chance of Greece having a real economy or market.

Right now everything is frozen: the country’s economy and all kinds of investments.

The prolongation of the current uncertainty and the excessive dramatization of the negotiating process will have catastrophic results.

The bombardment of never-ending commentary, statements and interviews coming from every direction is decreasing the chances of a decent compromise – as well as raising the odds that the newly elected Greek administration will make a turn toward realism.

People need to realize that the country’s negotiations with its partners and lenders are not a reality show but reality, period.
