Same old, same old from the country whose future is supposedly being decided at today’s latest (we have now lost count) Eurosummit. Spoiler alert: nothing will be decided until after the US election. From AP: ‘Violence has broken out at an anti-austerity demonstration in Athens during a 24-hour general strike, with youths pelting riot police with petrol bombs and rocks. Riot police responded with tear gas to disperse the troublemakers during the clashes Thursday in the capital’s central Syntagma Square, as thousands of people marched through the streets. Greek workers are holding their second general strike in a month, protesting new austerity measures the government is negotiating with the debt-ridden country’s international creditors.” Too bad “rioter” is not a Full Time Equivalent employment position according to the Greek BLS. Or at least not yet.
