Bill Clinton Coming to Greece to Push Diaspora Charity Work

ATHENS Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will reportedly come to Greece later this week at the behest of a group of influential Greek Americans who want to change the negative image of the country as it struggles through an economic crisis. The Hellenic Initiative program backed by Diaspora business executives, lawyers, scientists and others, including Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris; Washington attorney George Stamas; New York money manager John Calamos, has a goal to raise $100 million that would be used to help Greek charity groups, try to help Greece make structural reforms including tax collections to raise revenues in a culture of rampant tax evasion, and promote foreign investment.

New Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is overseeing an uneasy coalition government of his New Democracy Conservatives, its rival PASOK Socialists and the tiny Democratic Left and is faced with trying to renegotiate terms of harsh austerity measures demanded by the Troika of the European Union-International Monetary Fund-European Central Bank (EU-IMF-ECB) that is putting up $152 billion in rescue loans and withholding a second for $173 billion more until the new government makes more reforms and cuts another $15 billion in spending.

Clinton will meet with Samaras and participate in a closed meeting with Greek-American leaders on July 22 to examine how the initiative can work. Diaspora leaders have for years tried to help Greece but been rebuffed. Clintons involvement and his work in global programs is expected to give this effort a critical boost. As President, Clinton came to Greece to apologize for Americas involvement with the military junta from 1967-74 and was in the country as well in 2007.

The initiative wants to gain international interest to show Greece is worthwhile of investment and change its image as a country of shiftless workers bogged down in an unsolvable crisis and who have taken to regular protests, strikes and riots against the pay cuts, tax hikes and slashed pensions initially imposed by the former Administration of then PASOK-leader George Papandreou, who had a friendly relationship with Clinton. They are also expected to meet. Papandreou resigned as Prime Minister last year in the face of relentless protests, stepped down earlier this year as PASOK leader and will be a Visiting Fellow at Harvard in the fall.

Hellenic Initiative is a non-profit organization which aims at improving the quality of life of the Greek people during the crisis, the organizers said. They added, We will focus on administering help to Greek families for medical treatment and social welfare and to organizations that fight poverty. Time is pressing, that is why we are immediately starting the humanistic campaign for Greece, words that reflected the sentiments of Washington lawyer Manny Rouvelas to the newspaper Kathimerini. He said that, Those people who are less responsible for the situation today have suffered the most and we have to help them.

Hellenic Initiative said it would work only with groups with a proven record of responsibility as the country has a notoriously corrupt political system. The group leaders said they were coming as pragmatists with feasible ideas, not as idealists with good intentions. They added, Our involvement will not be passive. We will select and fund the best charity organizations, we will evaluate their needs and we will check their effectiveness, adopting the standards and practices that are followed in the United States.

The organizers pointed out their close co-operation with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, which has an office in New York, and which earlier this year offered $100 million in aid for Greece. Now it is our turn, the Hellenic Initiative leaders added. The program is based on an Irish effort to promote that country and is designed to override the rigidity of the public sector. The group said the countrys problems were not caused by the private sector, but a string of governments who failed Greece.

The future of the country is in providing high-technology services, the group said, an area in which young Greeks excel, although some 70 percent of whom said they want to leave Greece to seek a better life and future elsewhere as more than 50 percent of Greeks under 25 are out of work and facing the prospect of working for less than $1,000 a month if they can find a job.

Greek Non-Governmental Organization (NGOs) including medical services are struggling to help Greeks being pushed to the edge of poverty while the Greek Orthodox Church said it will add more soup kitchens to help people who do not have enough food to eat. Greek charities are being inundated with requests for assistance while tax evaders owing the country some $70 billion have gone largely unpunished, and the rich and politicians have mostly escaped sacrifices being demanded of workers, the poor and pensioners, the target group that Hellenic Initiative is hoping to help.

Bill Clinton Heads to Greece this Weekend to Promote The Hellenic Initiative

ATHENS Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will be in Greece this weekend to promote The Hellenic Initiative, an initiative organized by Greeks of the Diaspora that aims to help Greece overcome the current crisis. The program aims to raise $100 million to help Greek charities struggling during the countrys economic crisis and in its second phase to attract investments and improve Greeces image abroad.

The Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has requested a meeting with the former U.S. President something that has not been scheduled yet.

Hellenic Initiative leaders, include Chicago money manager John Calamos, Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris and Washington attorney George Stamas. The group wants to use donations to help Greece make structural reforms including improving tax collections to raise revenues in a culture of rampant tax evasion, and promote foreign investment, but its primary mission is to help charities it said have a record for accountability and transparency in a country where corruption is rife.

Diaspora leaders have for years tried to help Greece but been rebuffed. Clintons involvement and his work in global programs is expected to give this effort a critical boost. As President, Clinton came to Greece to apologize for Americas involvement with the military junta from 1967-74 and was in the country as well in 2007.

Hellenic Initiative is a non-profit organization which aims at improving the quality of life of the Greek people during the crisis, the organizers said. They added, We will focus on administering help to Greek families for medical treatment and social welfare and to organizations that fight poverty. Time is pressing, that is why we are immediately starting the humanistic campaign for Greece, it said in a statement.

Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras is facing a dilemma. Greece is being ordered by international lenders who have already put up two bailouts totaling $325 billion to make another $14 billion in cuts and impose more austerity measures or face the money pipeline being shut off, which means the country would be unable to pay its workers and pensioners and charity programs would be on their own.

SAMARAS CRIES TO BILL : OUR ECONOMY SIMPLY FCUKED PLS HELP US




Samaras: Greek Economy is in a Great Depression
By A. Papapostolou on July 22, 2012 in News, Politics


Greece is in a Great Depression similar to the American one in the 1930s, the countrys Prime Minister Antonis Samaras told former US President Bill Clinton on Sunday.
Mr Samarass comments come two days before a team of Greeces debt inspectors arrive in Athens to push for further austerity measures if the debt-laden country wants to qualify for further rescue payments and avoid a chaotic default.
You had the Great Depression in the United States, Samaras told Clinton, who was visiting Greece as part of a delegation of Greek-American businessmen. This is exactly what were going through in Greece its our version of the Great Depression.

Clinton criticized Greeces lenders for focusing excessively on austerity, saying Athens will be more likely to repay its debt if its manages economic recovery first.
(It) is self-defeating if every day people are saying this may or may not work to give us back a 100 cents on the dollar, so give us more austerity today, he told Samaras.
People need something to look forward to when they get up in the morning young Greeks need something to believe in so they can stake their future out here, Clinton said.

He say with other words, drill for oil Greeks, drill....


He arrived on Saturday night, and after dining at a posh restaurant on Syggrou avenue, he held late night (and hush-hush) meetings with various Greek politicians at the luxurious Grande Bretagne hotel. The main subject on the agenda was (as expected) Greek hydrocarbons and deposits which have already been identified and are set for exploitation. It needs to be reminded that Clinton is a major shareholder in Nobel Energy, which is currently operating in Cyprus.
