All these Leaks about Greece’s bankruptcy, its Debt restructuring and return to Drahma…. where do they come from?
by Petros Leotsakos – Journalist – bankingnews.gr
Shades of indications but not evidence have started to emerge about who leaks all these “doomsday scenarios” about Greece’s bankruptcy and return of Drahma.
First of all I want to say that the return of Drahma will be devastating for the country. It will be the pure economical destruction. It will constitute a historic blunder of enormous proportions.
But while everyone knows the massive adverse impact of such a move, who are the ones then, who leak that the country will go bankrupt or that it will exit the Eurozone and will bring back the Drahma?
Based on indications but not on evidence one of the leakage sources can be identified as the consultants and running around aides of the Government, whose primary target is to create an “atmosphere”.
If, for example, the government wants to pass new and tough measures, what is most effective than to spread news the orderly scare the average citizen and make him yield to the harsh measures?
In this climate that is shaped inside Greece, there added the negative attitudes of some ‘centers’ outside Greece. Both accentuate and aggravate the problem, especially the psychology of people.
There is a further question to be raised here: the Economic Situation has not stabilized. On the contrary it is beyond the threshold levels. Any error in handling the crisis will certainly drive Greece into stalemate. And at the end, perhaps those targeted leakages will eventually turn into facts.
Greece is at threshold levels.
