VIDEO: GREECE SHOULD EXIT THE EURO

The Paltry Sapien‘s Matthew Payne has been posting excellent running commentary and analysis on Greece’s political-economic situation here in the Chatterbox. Back in July, meanwhile, I presented University of London (SOAS) professor Costas Lapavitsas’ analysis that Greece should default and exit the Euro. Here’s Lapavitsas making the case anew on The Real News. (For a counter-perspective, that Greece should default but wait to exit the Euro, see Economics professor Yanis Varoufakis.)

One response to “VIDEO: GREECE SHOULD EXIT THE EURO

  1. Great site. Not sure how much of a readership you have but glad to be reposted here a couple times. As much as Greece represents the Western frontline of post-2008 politics, the factionalism and lack of coherence on the Greek Left is also relevant (and the Greek left has a much stronger, insurgent tradition than most Western nations….). The largest crisis of capitalism in 80 years has not resulted in any substantial gains for the Left. But we must continue to push, to fight, and celebrate each other. All power to the Greek Left.
