Up to our necks

Every day, Greece sinks deeper and deeper into the quagmire of unresolved issues. Data presented in Kathimerini’s Sunday edition show that the country has become a laggard in a number of different areas.

No one can say that the current government alone is to blame for these shortcomings, as they are clearly the result of decades of failure to get to grips with the real issues.

It is also clear, however, that the present government cannot get Greece out of the quagmire because it has absolutely no organizational skills and is bogged down by its obsessions and persecution mania. Even the major issues – the obvious ones – are viewed through the leftists’ narrow prism and seen as just another opportunity to sell some hype.

Greece’s position is extremely precarious and will remain so even if the country’s creditors cut it some slack because of the refugee crisis. Its productive forces are fleeing overtaxation and insecurity. A point will come when our partners will want to support us in order to maintain stability in Europe but it will be too late.
