Response to dipsydoodle (Reply #2)

8. The concern is, I would think, over the pollution problems

by foreign owners.
One example being BP's trashing of the Gulf of Mexico and of Louisiana's coast.

If Greece wanted to mine its own gold, it would at least keep the income in Greece and be somewhat more responsive to any environmental issues.
But foreign companies come in, grab the wealth and leave behind contamination.
Sadly, the USA has way too long of a past doing that in So. American, for one example.
