Maybe you have already heard and read about the claims that various hedge funds have against Argentina, after its default, including the recent attempt to seize an Argentine Navy ship!!! Read more on this article from Bloomberg. Well, it may have been as well that Greece has not defaulted, who knows what they would be asking in terms of assets – I mean besides what its already gone; maybe the Acropolis?!

The measure itself is not new, Michigan is the 24th state to enact it. However, it is useful to read through this article to keep track with the ever changing political and economic landscape of the US economy – and to make comparisons with our own system here in Greece. The source is Bloomberg. As always, browse through the readers’ comments!

True Capitalists Are Pro-Market, Not Pro-Business June 8, 2012

Could not have been stated batter. A great article from Stephen Carter @ Yale Law on a new book by Chigago Professor Luigi Zingales, read the whole thing. Here is a nice excerpt:

“The real trouble, he (Zingales) contends, is the death of the Horatio Alger myth. People no longer believe that hard work and following the rules will get you ahead. The game, they believe, is fixed. Zingales thinks they’re right. Special interests — particularly big business and big labor — hold too much influence over the divvying up of resources that has become among the most important functions of government. His solution, however, is less regulation, not more. He prefers fewer and simpler rules, and a government that encourages entrepreneurship without trying to become an entrepreneur.”

How Zippos, dredges and vitamins can save the American middle class May 27, 2012

Read carefully this article. Although it pertains to the US (and our US readers should take notice) it is very important to consider it in the case of Greece. Global opportunities are there for those small & medium enterprises that are willing to adapt and go with the new flow of money and information. And these businesses thrive and add employment rather than being taken down by low-wage competition. It is possible, by innovation and adaptation – and consistent quality products with respect for the final customer.
