Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Great to see MERA (Diem25) getting a look in, and Yannis Varoufakis back to create a little mayhem with his economically orthodox but politically "beyond the pale" policies. Like you, I am no expert on Greece, but from what little I hear things have been improving slowly off a very low base, with growth of 1.4% in 2017 and 1.9% in 2018 following a 30% decline in the years 2008-13 and stagnation thereafter.

Hopefully the conservatives won't be able to completely sell off all public assets and destroy all public services in their time in office. It would be ironic, but typical, if Syriza were turfed out just as the economy had turned the corner and New Democracy claimed all the credit despite putting that recovery at risk with unnecessary austerity policies.
