Has the Greek massive “No” vote to austerity triggered a wave of popular demand for referendums on austerity and exiting the eurozone?

It was reported this week that “[o]ver 260,000 Austrians have signed a petition calling for the EU exit for the country, and now the Austrian parliament must discuss a referendum on the issue.” Inspired by the Greeks, the British population is now asking for a referendum on austerity.

But is the financial world order threatened at all?

Michel Chossudovsky and James Corbett discuss “financial cleansing”, or how “bankers and their political cronies will be able to use the bail-in, this weapon of financial destruction, not against the megabanks but against smaller banks, credit unions and independent banks that threaten their monopoly of power.”

“Hitting depositors” could become the “new normal” of this diabolical project, serving the interests of the global financial conglomerates. There are provisions in the US, Canada and the EU pertaining to the outright confiscation of bank deposits.

With the bail-in procedure in their arsenal, bankers and their political cronies will be able to use this weapon of financial destruction not against the megabanks but against smaller banks, credit unions and independent banks that threaten their monopoly of power.

Why Greece Will Have to Exit the Eurozone, Jonathan Cook, July 08, 2015

I’m no economist but I have been wondering how Syriza plans to bypass German-imposed austerity as long as it sticks with the euro. Depressed economies recover by devaluing their currency so that they can become more competitive. But Greece is…

Washington’s geopolitical strategy when bullying fails is either assassinating independent leaders, color revolutions, military coups or naked aggression. If Moscow-based independent investigative journalist John Helmer is right, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is a marked man and SYRIZA governance on…

I doubt that there will be a Greek exit. The Greek referendum, in which the Greek government’s position easily prevailed, tells the troika (EU Commission, European Central Bank, IMF, with of course Washington as the puppet master) that the Greek…
