Greece 'a Laboratory of a New Kind of Europe'

Greece 'a Laboratory of a New Kind of Europe'

Paul Mason believes that Greece “is more than just a hostage of the international banking system. It is a laboratory of a new kind of Europe” and thinks that there isn't a single serious economist who believes Greek debt is viable. He also points out that the refugee crisis has just began, and is threatening the European project. 
He also points to signs that an alternative economy of the kind examined in his book is starting to emerge, "even in beleaguered Greece".
 "The “Omicron project” in Greece recorded something like seventy alternative economic projects, parallel currencies, time banks. Even in beleaguered Greece there is the beginning, I think, of an economy that can change the way we live," Mason notes.
