Confessions of an Economic Hitman

The YouTube uploader wrote:

I'm uploading this in connection with the financial crisis in Greece and Europe. Many North Europeans think Greece and Europe is in crisis because the Greeks lived more luxarious that they could afford.

The truth is far from that. Funny, I saw this movie/documentary (Zeitgeist 2 [addendum]) before the crisis broke out in Greece. Watching the things 2 years now, I recognise the pattern that is described by this ex-economic hitman (John Perkins) in this clip, which is a small part of the Zeitgeist 2 documentary which is REALLY worth watching. Now I can tell with cerntainty, Greece is not paying for its thoughtlessness. Greece is right now under the attack of economic hitmen. And I'm afraid so is the whole Europe, country after country.

direkt attack on US financial dominance ...
By Yanis Varoufakis / yanisvaroufakis.eu

Like all struggles for democratic rights, so too this historic rejection of the Eurogroup’s 25th June ultimatum comes with a large price tag attached. It is, therefore, essential that the great capital bestowed upon our government by the splendid NO vote be invested immediately into a YES to a proper resolution – to an agreement that involves debt restructuring, less austerity, redistribution in favour of the needy, and real reforms.

Soon after the announcement of the referendum results, I was made aware of a certain preference by some Eurogroup participants, and assorted ‘partners’, for my… ‘absence’ from its meetings; an idea that the Prime Minister judged to be potentially helpful to him in reaching an agreement. For this reason I am leaving the Ministry of Finance today.

I consider it my duty to help Alexis Tsipras exploit, as he sees fit, the capital that the Greek people granted us through yesterday’s referendum.

And I shall wear the creditors’ loathing with pride.

We of the Left know how to act collectively with no care for the privileges of office. I shall support fully Prime Minister Tsipras, the new Minister of Finance, and our government.

The superhuman effort to honour the brave people of Greece, and the famous OXI (NO) that they granted to democrats the world over, is just beginning.

Minister No More!
