Athens burns: New policy to protect creditors looked good on paper…


The Greek Parliament just voted in new austerity measures.  Apparently,  mandating cutbacks for people who are already dirt poor, all the while not arresting or even asking for sacrifices from those who caused and  profited (and continue to profit) from the global economic melt-down is not going over well.  If I were a member of the Greek Parliament, I’d quit the euro and use Iceland’s approach to handling debt.  But that’s just me.
