Greece might sell rail system

This never made sense:

  1. Financial downturn causes unemployment and decreased tax revenue
  2. Austerity: cut employment and destroy civil society
  3. ????
  4. Recovery!

But this makes sense:

  1. Rich people cheat on taxes, institute a monetary regime with no safeguards, and speculate like crazy, leading to financial downturn
  2. Rich people make help conditional on austerity
  3. Desperate governments agree and finally start desperately selling everything they own like a cancer patient on an HMO
  4. Massive profit for rich people!
