Agora

In ancient Athens, the agora was where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life. It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website. Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events unfolding in Greece and beyond.

In May 2020, we also launched a podcast called The Agora, delivering insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests. If you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora. Our show is hosted on Acast, but you can also listen to us here:

We follow up on Blog 16 of April 2022 and continue to be in search of Odysseus, who is aiming to guide the people of Greece back home from a high debt ratio in the economy to a much lower debt ratio. The Odysseus metaphor was developed in the book “The Macroeconomy of Greece” published in 2019 with data through mid-2018.
