From Newstalk’s The Wide Angle with Karen Coleman:
- Dr. Thomais Kakouli-Duarte, President of the Hellenic (Greek) Community of Ireland 2006-2011, Secretary of the Greek Orthodox Community in Ireland 2006-present, Lecturer & investigator at Institute of Technology Carlow;
- Economist Constantin Gurdgiev;
- Marian Harkin, independent MEP;
Part 2; from about timestamp 2:30 minutes in.
[One important point: Karen Coleman repeatedly and uncritically engages in hyperbole by treating default, leaving the euro, and the survival of the EU as synonymous (“scary stuff…”); to use a counter-analogy – the USA (and Federal Reserve) is not going to collapse because California or some other state might default on its debts. This is absurd. This narrative is a threat being waved at all of us to scare us into not challenging the status quo.]
