It's almost like their workers know how to not just roll over and present their bellies to the CEOs

Some American dude is telling us we should lay off the poor Greeks and ixnay on the austerityay.

Charles Dallara, head of the Institute of International Finance, delivered a scathing attack on the policies of austerity in Athens.

"Europe and Greece need to steer a new course to find a better balance between austerity and growth, between short-term fiscal discipline and long-term expansions of output and employment opportunities," Dallara said in a speech outlining the strategy that he argued was required for Greece and Europe to emerge from the crisis.

"A return to real, sustainable economic growth can be the only genuine solution to Europe's crisis"....

I dunno. That sounds extremely wishy washy to me.

....he told the Hellenic Bank Association.

Ah, well, that explains it. Accept a speaker's gig at an Economic gab fest. Take advantage of the opportunity to thump your tub and do a bit of networking and play some soggy SAO. Get put up in some nice digs and receive a gold pass for all the conference dinners and parties.

Tell 'em what they wanna hear and get the fark outta Dodge.

In his speech, why didn't he call out recent Greek culture as being self destructive, and that they have become a nation of selfish, tax dodging, public sector working, retiring early, listless layabouts? And that it's time to pay the Piper.

John Kerry ran on the premise that we should be more like Greece and Europe.

Well, next they'll form the Confederate European Union.

I know the banks are an easy target, but Greece was broken in the simplest way possible: they spent more than they taxed, and you can't do that without some consequences eventually.
