- Must See: Greece Explained In One Picture (ZeroHedge, June 14, 2012):
We were going to do a caption contest out of this image, but unfortunately this is not funny. It is tragic. Many people will lose all their money, savings, livelihood, and more because of this…
What is it? It is a picture taken at the Athens ministry of finance.
It is part of a full documentary (go to 24 minutes in for the lack of money shot) released a few days ago by German TV station ZDF called The Greek Lie. It is self-explanatory, and shows where 2 years of bailout funds went, or rather didn’t, and why 2 years to the day after the first bailout, not only is Greece not fixed, but is days away from leaving the Eurozone, but at a cost to taxpayers of nearly half a trillion.
We urge anyone, even non-German speakers, to set aside 45 minutes and view the clip below. It is unsettling at best.
