Greek Era

The Greek paradox, everybody is talking about the crisis – in Europe hardly a day passes by without hearing the word somewhere around you. But if you pay attention you will see that the very thing the crisis has done is the one that everybody was once praising: giving more value to “real things” and curbing our appetite for this unusual stuff we’ve been accumulating like greedy gluttons over the last years.

When Europe was invaded during the early centuries it fostered the fall of the Roman Empire – permitting small regions to form and to develop themselves autonomously creating the embryos of the very same nations today. Each “crisis”, as harsh as it seems, carries the seeds to blossom a new “era” – Europe is confronted today with this challenge and has yet been unable to take on it.
