Tensions Rise in Greece as Austerity Measures Backfire

The austerity measures that were supposed to fix Greece's problems are dragging down the country's economy. Stores are closing, tax revenues are falling and unemployment has hit an unbelievable 70 percent in some places. Frustrated workers are threatening to strike back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any "solution" to the economic problems that involves looting the poor to give to the rich is doomed to fail. Economies are built from the bottom up, and the only real way to get any economy moving again is to get wealth back into the hands of the working and middle class it was taken from. If the high paying jobs do not come back, the economy of [insert name of failed state here] is doomed.
