There is no easy way out

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

One of the big­gest prob­lems fac­ing Greek so­ci­ety to­day is the lack of ob­jec­tive and level-headed in­for­ma­tion. Our news me­dia are fall­ing prey to pop­ulism, par­tic­u­larly when they deem that do­ing so will in­crease their au­di­ence. Mean­while, they do not hes­i­tate to el­e­vate in­ex­pe­ri­enced or un­knowl­edge­able pun­dits into ex­perts. As a re­sult, a large sec­tion of the pub­lic has be­come ex­tremely re­cep­tive to ground­less gib­ber­ing and con­spir­acy the­o­ries. Some peo­ple claim that the main chunk of the debt is owed to ac­cru­ing in­ter­est. Oth­ers ar­gue that Greece can bor­row money from Rus­sia or China. Oth­ers still say that the so­lu­tion lies with a sus­pen­sion of pay­ments and the can­cel­la­tion of Greek debt. These dan­ger­ous the­o­ries must be ad­dressed by se­ri­ous politi­cians and ex­perts. Ev­ery­one in this coun­try must stop fan­ta­siz­ing that there could be an easy way out of this cri­sis.
