Professor: Here’s The REAL Conspiracy Behind Reports Of Greece Leaving The Euro
May 9, 2011
Early in the afternoon last Friday, Der Spiegel dropped a monster bombshell when it said that Greece was threatening to leave the Eurozone, and that an emergency meeting had been convened for that night among top leaders.
It was obviously partially true.
There was a meeting on Friday, and there is an acknowledgment that the current bailout path is unsustainable.
But the explosive report always seemed a little fishy, like something emanating from interested German sources.
Greek economics professor Yanis Varoufakis expounds more on this theory:
It is my considered opinion that Der Spiegel, in consultation with certain circles within the German government (in particular the Finance Ministry) was trying to send a message to the German Chancellor but also the Greek Prime Minister. And what is this message? That there are far worse things than a debt restructure, the worst being a step-by-step dismantling of the euro that will begin once a country like Greece is forced into an impossible situation. And that continuing to live in denial, and to peddle blatant lies about the sustainability of the present course will no longer be tolerated.
