Military Review

Greeks recognized undeveloped ...

38
Against the background of a somewhat calmer situation in the EU economy, which appeared to Europeans, there was another South European storm. The storm, which once again proves the thesis that the rest of the European Union and, in particular, the eurozone only dreams. What happened? We will understand in more detail.




The fact is that according to the recently published MSCI (Morgan Stanley) rating, Greece is losing its status as a developed country and moving into the category of emerging market countries. Behind the change of rating is a real blow to the European economy, which demonstrates its apparent instability and the inability to provide real assistance to those states that are parts of this economy and are in dire need of assistance. The reason for the instability by specialists is that the only “salvation” that the eurozone recently went against the Greeks was multi-lending. Moreover, lending was accompanied by overt pressure on the Greek social sector, which led and continues to lead to a sharp reaction from the population.

Such an acute reaction the other day again turned into protest rallies in different cities of Hellas. New fiscal austerity measures that are being imposed on countries like Germany and France (and saving the Greeks, having received the status of a member of the eurozone at one time, have obviously forgotten how) brought to the streets representatives of budget organizations. The provision of public utilities has been suspended for three days in large settlements of the country, which causes a real collapse not only for the domestic, but also for the manufacturing sector, which is already in disrepair in Greece.

The Greek protest has special colors, which are expressed in the fact that not only the people (trade unions) but also the servants of this people, namely representatives of regional authorities (heads of municipal administrations, mayors of cities), who together in the townspeople protest, took to the streets and squares. against the decision of the central authorities to make new job cuts in both the budget and production areas. The planned reduction in the number of jobs in the service sector, according to calculations by the financial analytical agencies of Greece, will lead to extremely negative consequences for the tourism sector. If tourists, accustomed to European comfort during their holidays in Greece, face a decline in the quality of the services provided, they will try to find new places for their holidays. And this will once again deal a tangible blow to the Greek financial system.

It is worth recalling that not so long ago, the main creditors decided to allocate Athens a “saving” loan in the amount of almost 7 billion euros, but under a number of conditions that the Greeks have to fulfill. One of these conditions, by the way, causing a particular negative among citizens of the country, is the need to carry out new layoffs in the public sector (about 15 thousand people before the end of 2014 of the year), as well as the next tax increase.

In the aforementioned study of the Greek economy, experts from MSCI report that the financial system of Hellas cannot get out of stagnation for a long time and also loses resources to attract investment capital. These points say that Greece should say goodbye to the status of a developed country and go, what is called, the floor below. But this raises the question: if the technology of salvation of the Greek economy by European partners will not change, then how long will the Greeks linger on the “floor” for developing economies. Apparently, no, because the principle: “we will give money if you close jobs” is clearly not like a panacea for the Greek economy.
After the decision of Morgan Stenley, Greece becomes on a par with 22 other developing countries, including Russia, Brazil, China and India. It is noteworthy that Russia and China in total have more weight in the Greek economy than the Greeks themselves have this weight. Developing enterprises are buying until recently developed ...

And the sale of Greek enterprises in foreign hands, meanwhile, does not stop. The Greek government finally decided on the privatization of the state railway system. The Privatization Agency acquired 100% stake in the Greek railway operator TRAINOSE. This is the first part of the privatization mechanism. The next stage is the resale of the Greek railways to private hands, and these hands will most likely not be Greek. Or not quite private ...

Applications for participation in the tender for the acquisition of the Greek railways will be submitted until September 16 2013. Great interest here is the possible participation of Russian Railways in the tender. The capitalization and level of economic activity of Russian Railways OJSC fully corresponds to the initial conditions of the tender. The only obstacle at the moment for acquiring the Greek Railways of Russian Railways is the lack of approval for the transaction by the Government of Russia. It’s not that our Government does not want to acquire the Hellas railways ... The fact is that for now, by all accounts, the management of Russian Railways itself is deep in thought about buying a Greek piece of iron. No, let's say, there is no official position, so a possible deal with a Russian state-owned company is in a bit of a hover.

Greece’s withdrawal from the number of developed countries can be considered a new swallow, bearing the news that the Greeks will also leave the eurozone. Will Athens make such a decision disastrous? It is unlikely ... The Greeks themselves already seem to accept the fact that they have very little left in the eurozone. The only thing that may cause serious concerns to ordinary citizens is that it will not turn out that at the time of returning to their own currency (drachma) all profitable enterprises and companies will be in the hands of foreign owners due to the total privatization and re-privatization carried out today. But then, then the Greeks will have to go at all not to the drachma, but to the ruble or the yuan, in order to pay off their “saviors” from Berlin, Paris and Brussels ...

    It seems to me that Western friends will not allow the Greeks to sell their strategic objects to us. Here, according to the principle: I myself am not, but I will not give it to others either. The Chinese may be given, but we do not. On the other hand, why on earth did the Greek railway network surrender to us at all? It has no serious geographical significance, and, apparently, the Greeks themselves will not earn money soon.

      And why do we need their roads, technology there, I think they are not there. Profit earn is also unlikely. And Russian Railways themselves have much to invest. First, let us return to the Soviet speed of movement of freight trains, or China will catch up with this issue.

      New oil and gas breakthrough in Azerbaijan: according to the latest news from the energy world, the Greek government plans to sell DESFA to the Azerbaijani state-owned company SOCAR.

      The privatization tender for the state-owned gas distribution company DEPA in Greece and its subsidiary DESFA was scheduled for the first quarter of 2013. However, in February, an extension of the process was announced. Of all the bidders, the most advantageous offer came from the Russian company Gazprom, which offered fabulous $ 1,9 billion for the company's assets. Competition from other companies participating in the tender seemed unlikely, however, such a generous offer caused concern of the EU and the USA. One can understand the reasons for this reaction: Gazprom could significantly strengthen its position in southeastern Europe after entering the Greek gas market, which would create significant help in the process of implementing the South Stream project. In addition to supporting the export of its gas, the Russian side would also have the opportunity to hinder the export of gas to countries in the region from other exporting states. It was these prospects that caused such a high price offered by Gazprom.

        It seems that Greece is "drained".
        But not from the Eurozone. There is a "raider seizure" in the soft version, where instead of force pressure financial and economic leverage is used.
        No need to occupy the country - control the transport network, banking, financial and economic sector, fuel and energy sector ... And the country is at your feet ...

    these Greeks do not need the states and Israel because there is Turkey and even closer to Russia Azerbaijan - from here the missiles will fly faster; and the Egyptians after the capture of Libyan oil were also not needed, therefore the endless "carnival show" on the square in Cairo and the loot to throw Jews to these countries no longer

    It’s not necessary to Greece — neither our rubles nor our dollars should be entered again — money isn’t enough for myself — I also found rich people! I’ve not been ten years old myself, as pensioners began to have enough for food, and that’s only in Moscow. fraternal help "? Which of those" brothers "helped Russia, I am silent about the material aspect, at least morally? And the roads there are better than in the center of Moscow.
    And the question is, after joining the EU, Greece is smoothly (by order of the European Parliament, there is such a government body to which no national government is a decree, neither Greek nor French) -by the order of the European Parliament smoothly minimized many industries. -Greeks don’t work, and the number of luxury Porsche Cayenne cars is almost more than in Germany, where the Germans plow from dawn to dusk. People lost their jobs, they can’t pay loans for objective reasons beyond their control. in general terms, the price of the question. Because to the redits were taken from private banks. Understood? If it weren’t for the desire to return the EU’s grandmothers who had once been invested in Greece, they would not have bothered with the Greeks.

    The Greeks were corrupted by money. In order to pay on loans that they generously gave them, you need to take money from somewhere. To have any industry in order to sell something, to develop the private sector, so that taxes are paid, etc. What can Greece offer now? Nothing. Only to myself. Will pay a quitrent or tribute - to anyone as you like. Lifetime interest service on loans. And no one will let them rise if they stay in the eurozone.

      I think the Greeks should advertise an option for Greece to leave the eurozone and to join the customs union (as a way out of the crisis).
      You look at them, their sworn friends, right away, throw a couple of billiards - if only this did not happen ... But selling your industry is simply very, very unreasonable ... Yes, and reducing wages, the number of jobs, shrinking the service sector. .. This is a narrowing of the domestic market and ... then, the degradation of the economy ... We need innovative solutions !!!

    Once upon a time there were Greeks. They grew and harvested olives, stinged oil. They sewed not bad clothes and made tolerable brandy. Tourists always went to them. Greek traveled across the river ... in general, they did not bother. And then they suddenly decided that it’s possible to join a certain community where everything will be common and nothing needs to be done.
    Did you see their social package before the crisis? This is a dream! And again, suddenly it turned out that money doesn’t give so easily, you still need to work. That's just forgot how already ...
    Now you need to start from the very beginning. Labor made a man out of a monkey. It is this path that the Greeks will have to repeat, only, most likely, in solitude. In the crowd of the European Union will not work.
