Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - Greece as a Case Study
The power grabs, the shift of labor and capital, it all seems so darn preplanned that it takes my breath away. Did they need a horrific recession to do this? Probably, after all, listen to all the people going on and on about taxes and spending. I'm not saying it was purposely triggered, but I do think the plans were already in the vault to take advantage of the chaos.

That is essentially what Klein argues in the Shock Doctrine. An economic system is pushed by neoliberals as the solution for everything, as it is implemented it creates bobbles and then crises, both is used for more reform. Over time more money is caught by the really rich, some of it used to finance more neolib propaganda.
