This is the corner in my website where i aim to share findings, articles, literature, thoughts and recommendations on various issues. My intention is to contribute in cultivating a ground of fertile thinking, through synthesis and contradictions and why not, opinion renewal. 1. The first upload includes a very important article written by current Prime Minister of Greece, Mr Lucas Papademos, published on 21st of October 2011, at Financial Times, just few days before he undertook the position.
This article, although is a technical approach in the Greek debt restructuring, it concludes with two major points to be under consideration and implementation: (a) the restoration of markets and (b) the rebound of public confidence, not only in Greece but in Europe.
The article may be read here.
