Yea pretty much that . Greece was an experiment on this crisis which failed badly.Its sad that people believe that greek people took money from the slovenian people for example and never paid back.Pretty much your money went into greek banks and disappeared or returned back to Germany without helping actually the current situation here

Germany phlizz 
Yeah I know we are getting interests on that money, most people don't even know and think we give free money to Greece from tax payer money. But it's not just Germany, every country in eu contributes I think and gets the same interest % but. On the free market Greece wouldn't be able anymore with the interest reaching ridiculous lvls so eu replaced that with Idk what amount but 0.5 to 1.5 should be the range
2018-12-26 17:39
didnt greece hold a referendum and said no to a international bail out that is why there economy is so bad atm?

Yea and ?
2018-12-27 11:44
If i said i was 12 or 32 it doesn't matter how old I am! The size of the bail out could have been a lot higher without much tax issues in Greece right? But you voted for 3 year bailout instead of a 10 year that would have sustained you economy a lot better and the hard working people of Greece wouldn't of had all the cuts imposed on them by the government fails years previous?

Our economy and the project from IMF was an experiment None greek goverment could actually do something after 2009 (Neither left or right) Nobody voted for 3 year bailout instead of 10 Few european countries who 'gave their money for nothing to Greece' made huge earnings. Pretty much that.

if they refuse the bailout theyre bankrupt in days since free market money would be 5 times more expensive than the bailout money would drop out of EU and become a third world country

Germany NatsuS 
The Government made a profit in the books but no real money. Also cuz of Greece the EZB interest are so low that the German people who are huge money saver lose over 50 billion dollars the last 8 years on interest. I don't complain about that but you should stop to think that in Germany sits an evil guy in the chair and pet his cat. Also, the € was a mistake because before the € all countries need the same standards. In Germany, people have to work till 67 for the pension. How long do you work till pension?

If you lived here, you'd understand why it exists, because drinking illegally and driving is already a problem among the older teenagers. Different from state to state as well.

Your rating Hungary 8,5 and America 8,5? Your rating Sweden 8/10? LMAO Hungary is boring, poor and with gypsies. Hungary should be 3,5/10 or 4/10. By the way Greece 8/10 LMAO ok.

2018-12-26 15:06
Dude both of them have collapsed economies, everyting related to politican is bad, it's poor, weak and in Hungary their are many gypsies and more people. That will do anything to earn some money including killing people. The rating of Sweden and America is fine but putting Hungary as good as America and better than Sweden is bad. You need to check the news brother.

I am not rating countries only for its economy. I am rating them for its people, food, weather, sights...
2018-12-26 15:10
Sure Greece has good people, good food and weather. But you can't only look on one side. A country can have great tourist destination but when you have a whole other side of danger and just bad stuff in general a country shouldn't be listed that high.

Thats why 8/10
2018-12-26 15:13
Bruh, you drunk? If a country has good tourist destinations but is poor, dangerous, with many gypsies, just a country is falling a part and is poor. Would you seriously give it a 8,5/10? By that sense Turkey is 9/10 and some poor African country 8/10.

You can't rate a country if You never lived there for at least 6 months. Thats a fact. I've been in 40+ countries in my life and I can't rate sh!t. I could rate some cities or some habbits of people living in those cities and thats it.

No, I like Turkey but I dont like its politics and society, thats why 6/10. If ur politics and society were like in Europe, I would rate u much higher.
2018-12-26 17:57
erdogan is a islamist he is a snake he did many help the infrastructure of turkey but the truth is he will take all freedoms of the country and using all islamist against the loyals Ataturk and create civil war to create islamic country he have 100 of bodyguard because he knows that one day they will kill him because not everybody is stupid and know what him plan is to destroy the country

2018-12-26 18:12
half of the turks love him(ignorant and radical muslims).he is a true dictator and denies other opinions Ataturk is the leader who made turkey a republic and erdogan hates him.he doesn't even wants to remember his name
