La tragedia griega (OPINIÓN)

Cuando Syriza presentó su programa económico el pasado mes de septiembre era evidente que fracasaría en el intento y tendría que renunciar a la mayoría de sus propuestas. El anuncio provocó una fuga de capitales, un desplome de la Bolsa de Atenas del 30% y un aumento de la prima de riesgo a 3 años de 1.300 puntos básicos. Es un terremoto similar al que provocó el temor a la quiebra de Bankia en 2012, pero en Grecia todo es más trágico. Lo más preocupante es que la fuga de capitales se ha contagiado a una fuga de depósitos. Tres de cada cuatro griegos no sólo no votaron a Syriza sino que consideran que sus propuestas podrían provocar la salida del euro y la quiebra del sistema bancario. Muchos han decidido sacar sus ahorros y en la mayoría de los casos meterlos debajo del colchón.
