    Α bedlam called…DEI (Public Power Corporation)

    Introduction by Antonis Papagiannidis

    Addendum by Panagis Vourloumis

    Since its hopeful and dynamic beginnings in the 1950s, Public Power Corporation (abbreviated as DEI in romanized Greek), distinguished itself as a well-organized company that covered the entire spectrum of electricity market, and, thanks to its reasonably priced electricity rates available to private individuals and enterprises, it became one of the decisive factors of the “financial wonder” of post-war Greece. How could this model public utility company become disorganized, torn apart, cease to provide cheap electricity and end up being labeled as a “systemic bomb” planted in the foundations of the Greek economy?

    This book, written by the former governor of DEI Raphael Moissis, and enriched with old but pungent stories from his two tenures in the corporation, describes the successive phases of this meteoric rise and fall, while it attempts to determine the culprits in Greece and abroad, and, finally, it suggests, in a discrete albeit responsible manner, some ways out of this dead-end.

    For those who might be willing to listen.
