Working in Southern Europe in Times of Crisis – Myths and Demons
Citizens of Southern Europe have been presented by the German media and politicians as lazy and work aversive. First, it is checked whether and to what extent those characterizations do reflect reality, and then, in view of the Greek economic crisis, it is shown that crises and not laziness destroy jobs. The presentation of the political reactions against those myths is followed by an analysis of the effects of such a political-economic demonization of southern European countries.
