"Productive" Potential of Greece vs. Germany
I'm getting kind of tired of all of the mainstream comments disparaging the "productivity" of the nation of Greece as measured by the usual orthodox methods. Pictures are sometimes worth one thousand words.
Here is a topo map of Greece:
And here is a topo map of Germany:
Large, contiguous areas of green = good for "productivity"; small, discontinuous areas of green, separated by large impassable mountainous formations and wide non-bridgeable seas, archipelagos and long ismuths = bad for "productivity".
Okay let's review: Large green: good..... small green: bad. Which area has more modern day "productive" potential?
Here below is a low orbit photo of Greece, seems like a tough place to get around in.
