Anche se i media sono ritrosi a trattare del problema greco, questo c’è: eccome!

Grecia. Il Grexit torna di attualità.

Grecia. I soldi finiranno a luglio, dopo le elezioni.

Grecia. La pacchia continua a spese nostre.

Grecia. Non se ne parla più, ma esiste ancora.

Tutto l’accordo si basa sulla promessa fatta dal Governo greco di mantenere un surplus primario pari al 3.5 % rispetto al pil per un lungo lasso di tempo: decine di anni.

Ad avviso di molti difficilmente il Governo greco potrebbe riuscire in codesta impresa. Ma molti sembrerebbero anche propensi a credere che questo accordo debba durare fino alle elezioni tedesche di autunno.

Per il momento, intanto, una sforbiciata che dimezza tutte le pensioni e l’abbassamento della soglia di esenzione dagli attuali 8,636 ai 5,700, ossia quattrocento euro al mese.

La Grecia sembrerebbe essere un esempio da manuale di come finiscano gli stati che abbiano fatto debiti fuori controllo e sembrerebbe indicare anche dove potrebbe finire l’Italia.


Ansa. 2017-05-02. Grecia, raggiunto accordo con creditori

Dopo mesi di negoziati la Grecia ha raggiunto un accordo sul debito con i suoi creditori. L’intesa, secondo quanto riporta l’agenzia Bloomberg, prevede tra l’altro un nuovo taglio delle pensioni e l’abbassamento della soglia di esenzione dai redditi tra i 5.700 e i 6.000 euro dagli attuali 8.636.


Ekathimerini. 2017-05-02. Greece, lenders reach long-awaited deal on bailout reforms

Greece and its foreign creditors reached a deal early on Tuesday on a package of bailout-mandated reforms, Greek Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said, paving the way for the disbursement of further rescue funds.

“There was white smoke,” Tsakalotos told reporters, using a term associated with papal elections.

“The negotiations for a technical deal were concluded on all issues… the way has now been paved for debt relief talks.”

Talks on the deal, which includes labor and energy reforms as well as pension cuts and tax rises, had dragged on for half a year mainly due to a rift between the European Union and the International Monetary Fund over fiscal targets.

Greece now needs to legislate the new measures before eurozone finance ministers approve the disbursement of loans, money Athens needs to repay 7.5 billion euros in debt maturing in July. The next scheduled Eurogroup meeting is on May 22, where reducing Greece’s debt will also be discussed.

As part of the reforms, Athens has promised to cut pensions in 2019 and cut the tax-free threshold in 2020 to produce savings worth 2 percent of gross domestic product.

If it outperforms its targets it will be allowed to activate a set of measures offsetting the impact of the additional austerity, which includes mainly lowering taxes.

Following Tuesday’s agreement, the lenders are likely to decide amongst themselves on Greece’s medium-term primary surplus targets, a key element for granting further debt relief.

The IMF says Greece cannot maintain high primary surpluses unless it adopts more austerity and is granted further debt relief by the EU.

In a draft document seen by Reuters, the Fund says Greece can reach a primary surplus of 2.2 percent in 2018 and aim at 3.5 percent annually in 2019-2021, if it implements the new measures agreed with its lenders. It suggests the primary surplus target be reduced to 1.5 percent of GDP thereafter.

Its eurozone lenders believe Greece has to sustain a 3.5 percent GDP primary surplus target over a longer period.
