US Economist Denies Being Part of 'Criminal Gang' Over Secret Plan B for Greece

It is now near criminal to advise taking steps that will anger the banksters,

James K. Galbraith does not expect to face criminal trial in Greece for being part of a five-man team, led by Yanis Varoufakis, carrying out contingency planning if the country was forced out of the euro, reports The Telegraph, but the treat is there.

Galbraith, a professor of government at the University of Texas and long-time friend of Varoufakis, co-ordinated a five-man effort which advised Athens on the emergency measures it could take if Greece was forced out of the eurozone.

Speaking to The Telegraph, albraith said he has received no official communication from Greek authorities about his own involvement and does not expect an extradition order to face trial in the country.

“If questions come my way I'll be happy to answer them” said Galbraith.

“We will see what happens, but I would be surprised if there is anything more than a fact finding mission [from Greek authorities] at this stage.”

The US economist spent five months in Greece until July, notes T, and was not paid for his efforts. The identity of the other three members has not been revealed

Varoufakis currently enjoys parliamentary immunity from criminal prosecution.

  1. Jct: Fascinating that when I ran for Canada's Prime Minister in 2003, I proposed an alternative LETS timebank currency too. Wonder why the banks didn't charge me, I had no immunity: Still, neat to think I was the first to hit them on their sore spot as we've seen the ouch from them over the Greek altenative currency. Guess they don't want anyone else offering a solution to Greece's financial woes.
