via This may be Greece’s biggest brain drain since the death of Socrates – MarketWatch.

These days, Greece has few upside opportunities. They are certainly heavily outweighed by the downside risks.

With Greece’s brightest brains voting with their feet, this is a very alarming signal.

I keep hoping that Greece will come to its senses. The current government are deliberately turning their backs on previously agreed reforms yet they are still giving the citizens of Greece hope that creditors will give way – this is much worse than Russian roulette.

Let me ask an open question:

Is there still room for optimism in Greece’s negotiations with creditors?


One response

  1. The short answer to Dr Alf’s question is no.
    This not least because Greece is not laying its cards squarely on the table and is playing games with creditors,its own people who it clearly does not trust and is ,worse than that lying to itself.
    To make headway the nonsense has to stop and the Greek people have to face reality.
    Because of duplicitous amateurs like Varoufakis who Chancellor Merkel can out think in her sleep Greeks have deluded themselves into thinking that they are in an advatageous position and that the EU and IMF will roll over and bail them out.
    This time it really is “High Noon” and Gary Cooper is not going to be around to save them.
