Philip Ammerman was interviewed on Al Jazeera's Counting the Cost, a weekly new programme hosted by Kamahl Santamaria.
The subject was the Greek debt crisis. Philip presented the actual interest costs of Greek debt, which are 1.7% compared to a US effective rate of 2.4%. The discussion revolved around the costs and requirements of structural reform and the need for a pro-growth agenda for Greece.
The data shown by Al Jazeera are taken from Navigator's January 19th article "Are Greece's Creditors Really Loan Sharks?"
