Lessons From Greece We have been hearing about the crisis in Greece for some time now. Greece is a small country and the prob- lems there will not affect us in the USA too much. So why should we be interested in what is going on there? The reason is that the situation in Greece shows us what happens when liberalism comes to its logical conclu- si on. The problems have developed over the years with politicians getting elected by promising unrealistic and unsustainable benefits and retirement plans. They have then borrowed more money than they repay, to try to fulfill their unrealistic promises. I hope that we in the US. can learn from the crisis in Greece, and reign in our out-of-control deficit spend- ing. We also need to stop making unrealistic promises for retirement pensions as a number of our states and cities have done. I see a new report from the Pew Foun— dation says the estimated deficit in state retirement sys- tems rose to $968 billion in 2013, the latest year for which data is available. That means there is a $968 billion short- fall. How will that be made up? I am pleased to be able to report that here in Iowa, we are working hard to avoid these kind of problems. Back to Greece. The International Monetary Fund predicts that, in two years’ time, Greek debt will reach close to 200% of GDP (national income). The IMF says that without write offs of much of the debt or a long term (30 years or so) extension of the debt, it is not sus- tainable. In an article from last December, the Greek Labor Minister Vroutsis, is quoted as saying in a report to Parliament: “In the public sector, 7.91% of pensioners retire be- tween the ages of 26 and 50, 23.64% between 51 and 55, and 43.53% between 56 and 61. In IKA, [Greece’s big- gest social security fund] 4.44% of pensioners retire be- tween the ages of 26 and 50, 12.83% retire betWeen 51 and 55, and 58.61% retire between 56 and 61. Meanwhile, in the so-called healthy funds, 91.6% of people retire before the national retirement age limit,” Vroutsis said. Greece spends about 17.5% of its production on pen- sions, the highest in the European Union. Unemploy- ment is about 25%. It should be obvious that for an economy to be successful, people have to produce things. Of course, that means that able bodied people have to work. You cannot survive for long by borrow- ing money from your neighbors. So long as Greece uses the Euro, they cannot use the last resort of many gov- ernments: printing more money. It is hard to see how this bailout will be successful. Something that has not been mentioned much in the press accounts is that there were already numerous aus— terity measures and bailouts beginning in 2010, that obviously failed. Conditions continue to worsen. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa. gov.
