GRIECHENLANDKRISE: EIN MÖGLICHER AUSWEG?

BEI EINER AUF ENGLISCH GEFÜHRTEN FACEBOOK-DISKUSSION ZUR GRIECHENDLAND-KRISE FRAGTE MICH EIN GESPRÄCHSPARTNER AUS GRIECHENLAND, WIE DENN MEINER MEINUNG NACH DIE STRUKTURREFORMEN IN GRIECHENLAND AUSSEHEN SOLLTEN.

WAS MÜSSTE ALSO IN GRIECHENLAND PASSIEREN, WENN ES TATSÄCHLICH ZU EINEM SCHULDENSCHNITT KOMMT, DIE EU IHRE KONDITIONEN ÜBERDENKT UND DIE GRIECHISCHE REGIERUNG ZU ECHTEN REFORMEN WILLENS UND FÄHIG IST?

HIER MEINE ÜBERLEGUNGEN DAZU, DIE ICH NUN AUCH ANDEREN ALS DENKANSTOSS UND DISKUSSIONSGRUNDLAGE ZUR VERFÜGUNG STELLE:

Well, I’d have to dip more into the subject in order to make some detailed suggestions, but generally speaking and to my opinion (and knowing well that I probably have not enough information really needed) the following reforms would make sense: Cutting military expenses (Greece’s military expenses are one of the highest of any NATO members in per capita terms); reducing or – even better – annihilating tax exemptions, for ship owners for instance or for the Greek Orthodox Church (Greece is a secular state, isn’t it?) or other privileged groups; more effectively fighting corruption and tax evasion (under the supervision of a EU-monitoring group that has the right to interfere); tense controls that will prohibit wealthy people from transfering their money abroad or force them to transfer at least a portion of it back to Greece (EU should help here, too); augmenting taxes on big property and lowering taxes on investments and wages at the same time; a VAT-increase – as proposed – is a bad idea in times of recession and crisis; getting rid of bureaucrats who have achieved their high positions not due to their qualifications but because of party affiliation and/or political loyalties (there should be independent commissions under EU-supervision to investigate in this matter and take decisions case by case, and yes, I know, that’s not only a Greek problem!); reducing bureaucracy as a whole and making its work more efficiently; creating new jobs, especially for young people, primarily by investing into structural projects (classical Keynsian measures); more investments into science, research and education; the breakup of monopolistic structures; and finally, introducing an modern Land Registry: I’ve read that some documents date back to the Ottoman period and are being stored in cellars in a non appropriate way (please correct me, if I am mistaken)… Well, I know, these are only a few ideas, there is certainly much more work to do, and I also know that some of my suggestions sound naive, probably, and are very difficult to implement…
