Romania pe urmele Greciei?
„The Greek state was not just corrupt but also corrupting. Once you saw how it worked you could understand a phenomenon which otherwise made no sense at all: the difficulty Greek people have saying a kind word about one another. Individual Greeks are delightful: funny, warm, smart, and good company. I left two dozen interviews saying to myself, “What great people!” They do not share the sentiment about one another: the hardest thing to do in Greece is to get one Michael Lewis in una dintre cele mai bune analize pe care le-am citit despre situatia din Grecia, despre imprumuturile aberante care au falimentat Grecia ($1.2 trillion in debt, or more than a quarter-million dollars for every working Greek).to compliment another behind his back. No success of any kind is regarded without suspicion. Everyone is pretty sure everyone is cheating on his taxes, or bribing politicians, or taking bribes, or lying about the value of his real estate. And this total absence of faith in one another is self-reinforcing. The epidemic of lying and cheating and stealing makes any sort of civic life impossible; the collapse of civic life only encourages more lying, cheating, and stealing. Lacking faith in one another, they fall back on themselves and their families. The structure of the Greek economy is collectivist, but the country, in spirit, is the opposite of a collective. Its real structure is every man for himself. Into this system investors had poured hundreds of billions of dollars. And the credit boom had pushed the country over the edge, into total moral collapse” scrie
Exista asemanari cu situatia din Romania? Eu spun ca da! Infricosator cat de multe asemanari sunt! Noi unde o sa ajungem cu imprumuturile acestea fara noima facute doar pentru a plati pensii si salarii si nu pentru investitii? Singurul raspuns posibil: in faliment!
