But in 2019, the Greeks dumped the leftist government of Alexis Tsipras and replaced it with a center-right government led by Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The result has been a rapid improvement of fortune.

I fell in love with Greece when we visited it three years ago. Back then, the economy was still a mess, and visibly so even to tourists like us. I’m delighted that the conservative government has turned things around rather dramatically, the pandemic notwithstanding.

There’s a lesson in that.

There is a lesson in that. One that I hope we don’t have to learn the same say Greece did.
