Re: Default by Greece Inevitable - Update : Heave to Oust Greece From the Eurozone
Klaus .. I have taken the time to read your two blogs and see little to disagree with in them ..... but my reponse is to your above post. My wife is not Greek, I have never lived in Chile, Argentina or Cuba but hopefully that does not disqualify me from dicussing the poverty of the people in Greece, a fact that is widely validated by the world's press.

In your above post you give me a history of how the Greek crisis came about but dismiss any concern for the suffering of the Greek people as demagoguery. You should look the meaning of words before you use them....... I am not a political leader.
A demagogue or rabble-rouser is a political leader who appeals to the emotions, prejudices, and ignorance of the poorer and less-educated classes in order to gain power. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demagogue
