An article was published on the NakedCapitalism website today, Greece’s Drachma Drama: Why Planning Is Too Important to be Left to Economists, written by My attention was drawn to two interesting comments in which two important points were made:
- The first point concerned the mainstream media in Greece.
- The second point concerned Yanis Varoufakis.

I am half greek, fluent in Greek and have been watching and reading the greek media for a while. I’ve been in Athens for the past 2 weeks and I can tell you the conventional media are running a proper witch hunt against Varoufakis (Skai in particular). He is either being scapegoated to divert the attention from the terms of the new bailout or because (IMHO) the old political parties view him as a major threat (he is rumoured to start a new party nationally or at the european level)…Sadly the level of debate in Greece is so abysmal that unsubstantiated mud throwing wins elections…
PS: Kathimerini used to be serious newspaper until it was sold to the current owner. Its really a rag now…like the FT (I read it for 20 years like everyone in WS and the City)”
Well! Well! Well! Very interesting developments indeed.
