Backward policy

Has the government introduced any growth-inducing measures that have escaped our attention? Because so far, the SYRIZA-led administration appears to be in a hurry to hire back employees who had been dismissed from the public sector. It dreams up alliances with other states and decides to fund unsustainable industries out of political self-interest.

Meanwhile, the economy has frozen. The new round of tax hikes on businesses will fuel unemployment. Foreign investors are shying away from the Greek market because they are put off by uncertainty and the lack of reliable interlocutors.

Without economic growth, we will never pull ourselves out of the crisis. Despite its pledges, this government has done its best to undermine our chances for economic reform. At the same time, ministers in key posts dream of a Greece based on a model straight from the developing world.
