    From Grexit Unto Grexodus

    in Current Events

    The Grexodus is real.  It has been triggered by a financial crisis.  So will yours.


     


    The Greek diaspora is massive – proportionally greater even than the British.  The free movement of people is a hallmark of any progressive civilisation.  But when austerity measures have cast more than half of young people into unemployment, the loss of more than 150,000 graduates from a population where only five million are available to contribute to national wellbeing does not bode well for the future.


    The figures are stark.  Classically just over half the Greek population is not available to work; this proportion of children, pensioners and those in poor health is little different to other countries.  So, of around 11 million people, the entire economy must be supported by around five million – but only 3.6 million Greeks are currently employed.  1.4 million are without work. Nearly half of those (0.64m) are aged less than 35 years.


    Estimates of the scale of the Greek exodus vary.  Some counts suggest that 75% of the 200,000 emigrants since 2010 are graduates – a brain drain that hardly encourages investment in new start-up enterprises.  Add to that the lack of bank funding for small businesses and the ever-tightening noose of welfare cuts, and it’s no surprise that well-educated young people are flying out.


    Grexodus, not Grexit: the Greater Greek Tragedy

    Hard Starboard Radio: "Time Is The Fire In Which We Burn"

    in Politics Conservative

    After last Thursday's excursion in blogcasting awesomeness, I received a call from Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, Washington, (my hometown) informing me that my father had been admitted after having fallen down the previous day and remained on the floor until he was found that afternoon.  He didn't suffer any broken bones, but he was diagnosed with possible spinal meningitis.  This is why I found myself in Wenatchee over the weekend and into today, just in time for the national headline-grabbing Sleepy Hollow wildfires.  The times, personally and politically speaking, could stand to be a bit less "interesting" for my tastes.


    While I await dear old Dad's brain MRI results, climb back into the Wayback Machine as we revisit a podcast from (nominally) better days.  And, of course, your prayers for my dad are deeply appreciated.
