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.

After all the hoopla over Greece in recent months, it’s weird that the agreement of a deal on Tuesday was not met with more celebration. It certainly came as a surprise to most analysts that a deal was struck (it’s amazing how fast agreement can be found when Greece capitulates and signs up to everything immediately).
