    I would be interested to know why they decided to build the track. Spending money without context always look bad, especially in a recession.

    Most likely in an attempt to bring new jobs and tourist money to the area.

    Which sounds so much better than not knowing, and assuming it's for recreational purposes.

    Nice new sig but i thought Mona Sahlin stepped down?
    Pretty sure she's out of the game nowadays, anyway... This thread is about Greece not the US or Sweden.
    Greece should spend their money on more important things, the worlds economy is already in the toilet and from the news i hear daily it dosnt look like a bright future for the next 5 years or so...
    Sucks that we need to hire more people at work but we are careful to do so when the economy is in the state its in.. :/

    But anyway, yeah, governments can't cut back on vanity spending in this day and age without pissing off the people who only want more more more spending. Citizens don't want to hear about budgets! They want to see race tracks and ant research and the other bread and circuses these failed government relied on to keep their people in check! As long as government officials, be it in the US or Greece, have access to the cash they need to make themselves comfortable, their policies are free from the burden of any financial reality. Lord knows their electorates won't hold them accountable. All they demand is a scapegoat. I'm assuming the Greek government has the same as the rest of the world's favorite these days: THE EVIL RICH

    As for OP, I can only guess that he's delighted to see Greece unflinchingly ignore the inconvenient economic numbers and plow on with vanity spending. I'm sure his pick for US president won't disappoint him in that regard.
    Wells is a die hard liberal democrat who will defend any obama or democrat point. YOu know this. He will never admit that you are making a parallel, just like he will never admit the failings of this administration in Benghazi.

    NO, the United States is giving the money it borrows from China to places like Egypt and Libya where they do terrorist attacks on our citizens. We would never give money to Greece for a racetrack, that is just silly.

    Statistics show that the size of the government in the US has always expanded more with a republican president at the helm than with a democrat president. Now, how can that be?

    You vote for a government which promises A
    The government comes into power and does the opposite of A
    You now blame the people for voting for the government which lied.

    Right, I see the logic.

    In portugal the people voted for a government that said it will do A
    The government was going about doing A
    A conflicts with the idea of a debt union (EU)
    Eu removes elected government and administers a puppet government (TECHNOCRACY)

    In italy the people voted for a government that said it will do A
    The government was going about doing A
    A conflicts with the idea of a debt union (EU)
    Eu removes elected government and administers a puppet government (TECHNOCRACY)

    In greece the people vote for a government that said it will do A
    The government is bullied into not doing A as it goes against the idea of a debt union (EU)
    Government is between rock and hardplace.
    Magnificence personified

    The problem here is:

    A) The Greek government promises an affluent life style for all Greeks for free.

    B) The Greek people believe it.

    Now we can argue who is the biggest fool, the idiot or the person following him?

    lol this thread is about Greece but not a single poster is actually addressing the topic, but instead ranting about OP and his signature.

    I hope it pays off for Greece to build that track. Maybe the return of investment wont be so far away and the track is going to bring some profit. Otherwise it would indeed be a huge waste of money.

    Well who's the new leader of the Social Democrats? Also, I just found out that Sweden has a Pirate Party. Why don't they get 100% of the vote????

    It seems the only thing politicians know how to do these days is wasting money on trivial things and cutting spending where more money is really needed: healthcare, schools, the elderly etc. Not only in Greece, but all over the effing globe.

    And I kinda hate the thought that my hard-earned money in the form of taxes and later on in the form of financial support for the lazy bastards is used on a stupid racing track. I cannot stand motor sports, stupidest thing to do when we're running out of oil in a matter of a few decades (unless someone finds more or we cut down on spending it). Just as a tangent.

    Honestly, I think most politicians forget after their election that they are supposed to be working for their people, not spending money on useless sh*t. Especially when they have no money to spend.

    I have nothing against Greek civilians (though some of them were not really helping by not paying taxes or by collecting pension for dead people), but I have everything against politicians.

    What? None of those were removed by the EU.

    The portuguese PM resigned after his measures were rejected by parliament. The italian PM resigned after losing his majority in parliament. All of those governments said that there would be austerity in their electoral manifestos.
