What classes from which countries are going to be paying
what amounts for the Greek bailout? How would one go
about quantifying the likely magnitude of the decline
in living standards of the Greek working class as a result of
the austerity plan? Which segments of the working class are
going to be hurt to a greater extent? How will the bailout
likely affect the 'middle classes', the petty commodity
producing sector, and the degree of centralization of capital
in Greece? How will this affect the penetration of large
units of capital based in other nations on Greece? How will
the working class in the rest of the EU be affected? How will
this affect the future of the EU itself? Given the current
balance of forces, to what extent will working class resistance
affect the outcomes of the bailout?
Any takers?
In solidarity, Jerry
