Over the years, the frequency of my tv interventions has been highly correlated with the Euro Crisis’ above-the-surface intensity. This page offers links to some of them.

Featured videos: The two featured videos that I selected for this page are: (a) a mini documentary on the Euro Crisis that I wrote and presented for Channel 4 and (b) a far-ranging interview with Christian Amanpour on CNN International. 

Scroll below the two featured videos that follow for the comprehensive list of links (last updated October 2013):

  1. I think what you propose is simple and brilliant. Even though your party is perceived as completely socialist and far left wing, it is really more capitalist in the sense that everyone should have a chance at prosperity. I am an American an this is what I love about my country. I started with nothing and through hard work and education I have succeeded in life. There are endless opportunities in this country. I do have some greek ancestry and it saddens me that they do not have the same chances that I have had. I hope you can break the chain of favoritism and oligarchism and allow everyone an equal opportunity to succeed in life.
