Greece is a country which could attract major investment from abroad. Could being the operative word.
The cost of labor has dropped considerably over the last few years, while Greece continues to boast excellent human resources.
However, at the same time, the existence of an endless list of hurdles leads many of those contemplating making some kind of investment in the country to eventually lose faith.
The current SYRIZA-Independent Greeks coalition government has placed a number of sworn enemies of entrepreneurship in key positions which have everything to do with attracting investment to Greece.
All of these individuals, each for their own particular reasons, are taking part in an undeclared war on investment and privatizations.
Why these people find themselves in such pivotal roles, at a time when even Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras himself believes these positions to be a major priority, is nothing short of a mystery.
