The Establishment Politician Trying to Win Back Greece

Greece is poised to do something increasingly rare in Europe these days: elect an establishment politician as their next prime minister.

Despite presiding over a fragile economic recovery, Greeks appear to have grown tired of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his Syriza party, and are looking to shake things up during this Sunday’s legislative election.

All signs indicate Kyriakos Mitsotakis of the centre-right New Democracy party will come out on top.

If those projections hold and Greeks end up choosing the 51-year-old Mitsotakis on Sunday, voters won’t just be voting for a fresh face, they’ll be ushering in a return to establishment politics.

Unlike Tsipras, who rose to power on a wave of anti-establishment sentiment and anger towards the EU, Mitsotakis represents Greek political aristocracy. His father Konstantinos was Prime Minister between 1990 and 1993.

“I think society realized that electing populists into power is not a solution to underlying economic problems. So essentially what is happening is the pendulum is swinging in the opposite direction,” he told VICE founder Shane Smith during an interview at the New Democracy party headquarters in Athens.

He’s not shy about his establishment credentials either. One of Mitsotakis’s main campaign planks is convincing Greek’s that his financial stewardship can spur renewed confidence in the Greek economy, and lead the lenders who bailed out its economy to the tune of 240 billion euros over eight years to ease their strict requirement that Greece maintain a budget surplus of 3.5 percent.

“The key challenge is to restore high growth rates,” Mitsotakis said. “If the economy grows faster, our creditors are going to be happy because the debt is going to be repaid more easily.”

And to get the economy growing at a faster rate Mitsotakis is appealing to young Greek who left the country during the financial crisis to return.

How Heart Disease Created America’s Wine Industry

For decades, people have been lowering the bars of other alcoholic drinks and looking for a rehab near me denver to get rid of their addiction. And on the contrary, red wine has been the “healthy” alcohol, set on a pedestal. But, is red wine actually good for you? Where did this idea come from? We speak with a cardiologist about red wine’s health benefits.

Following is a transcript of the video:

Jack: This is an inviting glass of wine. Inside is about 125 calories, about 15% alcohol by volume, and some antioxidants. Of course, we didn’t always think about it this scientifically. Humans have been drinking wine since the Dark Ages. The ancient Greeks even worshipped a god of wine. It wasn’t until the 20th century that we started asking ourselves, is red wine good for us? And that question is now more relevant than ever. After all, Americans have never consumed so much wine in their lives, but recent studies have shown that no amount of alcohol is good for you, and it seems pretty absurd that after all of this time, something so ingrained into culture could suddenly be bad for you. What if 10,000 years of human history has been wrong?

Dr. Nicole Harkin: If someone comes in and they’ve never consumed alcohol before, I certainly wouldn’t recommend starting to drink. Jack: So how often do patients ask you about red wine? Harkin: It’s definitely a common question I get. So I think the type of patients that tend to come to me do ask about alcohol consumption. It’s up there with, you know, stress.We all, you know, living in New York…

Jack: I began to wonder, where exactly did this idea that red wine is good for you come from? To answer that, we need to go to France. The year is 1976. It’s May 24, and France’s finest judges of wine gather for a blind tasting to decide which wines are the best in the world.

George Taber: The judges were the most famous wine experts that France had to offer.

Jack: That’s George Taber, the only journalist at the event now known as the Judgment of Paris, something that would change the world of wine forever.

Taber: Believe it or not, the California wines won in both the white category and the red category.

Jack: George reported the news, the French were furious, and Americans quietly rejoiced about something that they didn’t even really know they were good at. Up until this point, wine wasn’t a widely consumed beverage in the States.

Taber: Well, it was starting to become fairly popular, but not that much, it was still kind of the drink of the snobs…

Jack: Wine consumption and production would increase greatly during this time, setting the stage for what was to come.  As wine drinking grew in America, so did something else: waistlines.

Tape: 600 quality wieners pass through the famous hot dog highway.

Jack: An increase in processed foods boosted the amount of sugar and salt Americans consumed on a daily basis, sparking a nationwide obsession with weight and, more importantly, health. It was the perfect stage for what would happen next.

Harkin: For all countries, if you plot out kind of saturated fat and animal cholesterol consumption against cardiovascular disease, you sort of see a linear-based relationship whereby the more animal products you eat, the higher the rate of death. The French seemingly, for whatever reason, despite their large quantities of saturated fat intake, had a lower risk of cardiovascular death.

Jack: This went against conventional science at the time, but the French, despite their love of fatty meats, cheeses, and butter, had apparently found a loophole. In 1989, this unusual trend was coined the French Paradox. Two years later, “60 Minutes” premiered a landmark broadcast explaining the French Paradox and suggested that France’s regular consumption of red wine was what was protecting their hearts.

Morley Safer: So the answer to the riddle, the explanation of the paradox, may lie in this inviting glass.

Jack: At the time, “60 Minutes” was the highest-rated show on television, and middle-aged baby boomers now had this planted into their brains: You can eat all the meat and cheese and butter you want, all you have to do is drink more wine. Sales in the ’90s skyrocketed. Vineyards expanded, and everyone was drinking the hot new health beverage. The good reputation of wine is often attributed to its antioxidants like resveratrol, but there’s not enough resveratrol in wine to have beneficial effects. Right now, it’s just a good marketing term. It turns out it’s not just red wine that has some sort of health benefit. It’s any alcoholic beverage.

Greece emerges from last bailout, but doubts remain for some

Greeks react to their country emerging from its third and last bailout. The European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund loaned debt-wracked Greece a total of 289 billion euros ($330 billion) in three successive programmes in 2010, 2012 and 2015.

Anti-austerity strikes: Greeks struggle against new bailout package

The latest nationwide strike in Greece continues to cripple services – and coincides with MPs preparing to vote on a new austerity package. This will include at least an 86-billion-euro bailout package, a staggering thirteenth pensions cut since 2010, a reduction to income tax-free allowances.
With unemployment at 25-percent and nearly a half of young people in Greece out of work protests in Athens turned violent on Wednesday, on the eve of the vote.

Austerity and Anger: Protests Against Syriza’s EU Deal

On January 25, the leftist party Syriza emerged victorious in Greece’s national elections. Days later, Alex Tsipras, the new 40-year-old prime minister, formed a coalition government with a strong mandate to renegotiate Greece’s bailout terms and reduce its large debt pile, built up over the five-year financial crisis.

Tsipras and his team then engaged in bitter negotiations with the country’s international lenders. Athens sought to scrap the harsh measures attached to the bailout by describing the plight of austerity-hit Greeks as a “humanitarian crisis.” On February 20, a deal was clinched. The country’s loan agreement was extended by four months, giving Greece more breathing space to negotiate a better pact in the future, but also forcing Syriza to climb down on its pre-election promises.

Despite the deal, Greece is still broke and needs European loans to avoid bankruptcy. The new government’s popularity is slowly declining and uncertainty as to how Syriza will live up to its many promises remains.

Facing backlash from its own supporters, Syriza’s deal with the European Union has sparked angry demonstrations in Athens. VICE News attended the protests and spoke to people disillusioned with the current situation and the party’s pre-election pledges.
