In ancient Athens, the agora was the central location where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life and it gave birth to the Greek word for speaking in public: ἀγορεύω (agorevo). It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website.

Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events that are unfolding in Greece and beyond. Contributors to Macropolis, as well as guest posters, share their views on political, economic and other matters, while also offering readers the opportunity to express their opinions. As always, those who fail to respect the sanctity of this forum will not be allowed to share in its benefits.

Alexis Tsipras’s government had many people scratching their heads and some say even officials fuming with its approach and negotiating tactics since it came to power. It was evident from the very start that time would be against SYRIZA, and inconclusive as well as confrontational negotiations would fuel uncertainty, stretching the budget, draining liquidity, accelerating deposits flight and sinking the economy back into recession.
