Thread: Is anybody benefiting from Greece's financial crisis?

  1. #1

    Default Is anybody benefiting from Greece's financial crisis?

    Did Austrians, gold investors, land owners, creditors, or ANYBODY actually benefit from this crisis they are in?

    Or would anybody benefit after they're bailed out?

    Those that manufacture and sell the implements of war and police actions are definitely profiting. Once their society has totally collapsed those that rebuild cities and countries will profit.

    Goldman Sachs knew what they were doing when they loaned out to Greece back in 2002

    wouldn't Austrians and gold investors see that coming? Are there any in Greece? Were there derivatives that allowed them to benefit from it?

    is it fair to say people who got out of the stock market and either opted for cash or real estate did better?

    Tourists in Greece are certainly benefiting. Tourism accounts for a fifth Greece's GDP, and one in five workers in Greece are employed in tourism, which is now the booming part of Greece's economy, for whatever that's worth. That's the other edge of the capital flight sword, as capital rushes into Greece to take advantage of all the low prices after exchange rates are factored in.

    To Tourists, Greek Debt Crisis Is a Distant Concept

    Anybody who was short the Euro, and short any Euro indexes, profited like a mofo off the Greek crisis.

    There's always profit to be made off a crisis, thus why some unscrupulious individuals/institutions/countries try and provoke them (see Iran and current spike in crude for further info).

    The ECB and the IMF have definitely benefited, as part of the austerity measures forced upon the Greeks, officials from the banks are now embedded into the very top levels of the Greek gov't to ensure the bankers bidding is done. In short, they have lost their sovereignty. The ECB and IMF pretty much OWN Greece.. Personally i reckon they got a pretty cute deal, 130 billion euros for a country is not to be sniffed at =)

    Yep, all part of a Goldman Sachs plan. Do drug dealers make money? Debt dealers make even more.

    Anyone who wanted greek real estate/homes will be able to get it for a small fraction of the usual price (likely the big banks-who will sell it back to people at a vastly inflated price). Let the bankers control the money supply, and they will at some point own everything.
