Grove fouten gemaakt bij ‘redding’ Griekenland
Wat de Europese bevolking al lang wist is nu ook doorgedrongen tot de top van het IMF. De grote baas van het IMF, Christine Lagarde, heeft toegegeven dat er grote fouten zijn gemaakt bij de financiële redding van Griekenland. De schade die de Griekse economie heeft geleden door de opgelegde bezuinigingsmaatregelen is door de trojka zwaar onderschat. Dat nu wordt toegegeven dat er grote fouten zijn gemaakt wil niet zeggen dat deze zullen worden teruggedraaid.
Wanneer de Grieken ervoor gekozen zouden hebben het land failliet te laten gaan dan zouden de Grieken beslist door een hel zijn gegaan, maar het land zou nu wel weer in een groeifase terecht zijn gekomen zoals in IJsland het geval is. Nu echter zijn ze van de regen in de drup geraakt en kampt Griekenland met een steeds zwaardere depressie, die voor de toekomst niet veel goeds voorspelt. Anderzijds zou het IMF benadrukken dat de reactie op de Griekse crisis, die met de EU werd gecoördineerd, de overige 16 eurolanden tijd gaf om de gevolgen te beperken. Zo zou vooral de rest van de eurozone hebben geprofiteerd van de Griekse redding.
Wat de gevolgen zijn voor het eens redelijk welvarende Griekenland wordt getoond in onderstaande foto reportage welke door Zerohedge is gemaakt
