7 remedies for Greek crisis

Got several reactions to my post slow mind mapping, like can you show one. Here is one: 7 remedies for the Greek crisis. In all newspapers you read solutions like rescue packages (not structural), bailout (not structural), selling assets (not structural), leaving the euro-zone  or rather be kicked-out (not structural). All are based on fast thinking and short-term.

Our brain has a part for fast thinking (can I still cross the street?) and slow deliberate thinking (should I leave my job?). The latter is involved in slow mindmapping. I sat around with a group of Greek friends and we decided to map 7 structural solutions for the Greek crisis. Half an hour for every branch. Reform the pension system is a structural solution (according to the book Bust by Matthew Lynn Greece will spend 25 % of its GDP on pension costs in 2040 if nothing is changed). Revitalizing the Greece industry is a structural solution (Greece has the lowest export of all members of the EC). If we are to give money to the Greeks, it better be effective.
