It is good to hear Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou has been able to
muster support in favour of taking the bailout package and ensuring financial
stability for his nation for the near term.
I have read figures that show (for example in the Statesman Yearbook, which is
an authoritative compilation of statistics) that Greece had a debt to GDP load of
around 109 percent ten years ago.
After joining the Euro, they have had many good years, with healthy GDP growth
Only after 2008 - that was the year the financial world turned on its axis - has
Greece gone into a period of recession, which of course has spared no nation.
It is my prayer that when the good times return, by grace of God, Greece will
be one of the best in the Euro Club.
