    [03] Synaspismos committee convenes

    In his introduction, Panagiotis Lafazanis, member of Synaspismos‚s Political Secretariat, said that ?an international capitalistic crisis is in full swing with multiple repercussions and tragic social consequences.?

    At the same time, he criticized the neo-liberal model and the Greek government for its options.

    Lafazanis said that ?the neo-liberal ‚globalisation‚ is supposed to secure world ‚competition‚,? noting that ?the sudden entry into the world market of about one billion cheap labour force (China, India, eastern Europe), brings about low inflation and in extension low interest rates.?

    He added that ?all the previous years the interest rates, inflation, salaries were constantly restricted and showed a downward trend. However, miracles last for three days. Today, the international interest rates and more so international inflation show a new great upsurge.?
