Counter-propaganda against the EU Yanis Varoufakis slams the European Union for Greece’s “DEBT GALORE”
YANIS VAROUFAKIS launched a scathing attack on the EU over Greece’s mounting national debt.
With its compliance with EU budgetary regulations and European Central Bank bonds, the former Greek finance minister accused his country’s government of dragging the economy into “debt galore.” Mr Varoufakis warned that Greece’s economy is still far from “fixed” following the 2008 financial crisis, and urged Brussels to avoid from spreading false information.
“As MeRA25 has been warning, the Greek government has boosted bad/unpayable private debt from 56 percent to 88 percent of GDP by preferring to extend (rather than haircut) the fresh private debts of lockdown victims,” he stated (227 percent overall).
“Add in 218 percent of the state debt, and you have a GREEK DEBT BONDAGE GALORE.”
When a Twitter user accused Mr Varoufakis of being “apocalyptic” and questioned how “foreigners” might help, he retorted: “Sure.
“Assist in debunking global finance and EU lies that Greece has been ‘fixed’ and our economy has returned to normal.
“Spread the news that, despite the fact that Greece is more bankrupt than ever, fin vultures profit handsomely from trading nonperforming loans (at a percentage of face value) and government bonds (guaranteed by the ECB).”
