EPOS Conversations

The economic crisis in Greece is polarizing the opinions of the European citizens, firstly, and of all the intellectuals and the authorized personnel, secondly, about the system of the bailout and the attitude of the European Union towards Greece and the Greek population. The catastrophic results of the austerity policy have gone beyond any expectation. In spite of the propaganda that the Greek problem is a problem and a failure of the Greeks, everybody understands that behind the scenes is going the drama of the problems, the contradictions and the perspectives of Europe as a community, and a union. EPOS has interviewed the Athens-based Greek journalist Eleni-Vasiliki Bampaliouta, expert in politics and economy: in this exclusive conversation, she gives our readers her point of view from the ground on the economic crisis, the Greek government and the approach of the so-called TROIKA towards her and her compatriots
