The dangers of a “wait for later” situation

Posted by Antonis D. Papagiannidis 21/05/2018 1 Comment(s) Economia Blog,

The way in which last Saturday the fourth (and last) review of the current Adjustment Programme (the third and hopefully very last) was concluded by the Troika/Quartet - who reportedly were over-anxious to put this routine behind them, at long last - should normally augur well for Greece exiting this unpleasant period of 8 years.


Still, the continuing uneasiness in the German political system prevents major pieces of the Greek post-Programme puzzle to be resolved – especially so credible debt relief, promised ever since 2012 but unpalatable to Berlin. The fact that internal equilibria in Italy are now further disturbed by a possible Europhobic government in Rome complicate things. Athens may well end up in a “wait for later” queue, while nervousness increases in the financial markets to which Greece will have to rely from now on.


It is not only a matter of the extent of debt relief to be granted to Greece; not even of the conditionality, that is of the strings attached to such relief at German insistence (thus making the future access of Greece to the markets quite iffy a proposition). The form the post-Programme monitoring or surveillance – or whatever – will take may well play an unpleasantly heavy role in Greek politics in the near future. And thus undermine stability. A “wait for later” situation entails important risks.

I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my friends but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk.
