Globalizing Greece 24-7
When I lived in New York, I was within walking distance from a super market that was open 24 hours a day. I used to go do food shopping after midnight sometimes; once or twice, I had even done my purchases at 2 o'clock in the morning. I was surprised at the number of people who were doing the same.
This guy certainly is a paradox, he wants to have Greek retailers and Greece emulate the American 27-7 lifestyle, yet cringes at the thought of roving hordes of third-world illegals that keep such a economic machine and malfunctioning impersonal global society as its driving market force, amongst other malfunctions. Mind you the idea of 24 hour retailing is a very American concept. I'll never forget the chat I had with a Jewess in Paris' De Gaulle airport and her irritation at the French tradition of closing the entire country down for business on Sunday, a religious idea , that ironically France, the first secular revolution in the world, still follows to this day.
I'm not against business per say, but there is some charm in the fact that Greece is not always open for business like America seems to always be in, until now that is, things in Greece are in change fast, and whoever said that Greece is NOT an American colony in so many ways.
