Psychology of Creditors, Which Also Sheds Light Upon the Eurozone Crisis

Sinan Çaya


Creditors seem to share a common psychological profile, which, moreover, applies to legal personalities, besides individuals. It could be possible to shed some light onto the recent (and for many scholars ongoing) economic crisis of the European Union (which also triggers social and political repercussions), by an analysis of the creditors’ traditionally encountered attitudes and moods towards their debtors, which are handled in this article. The prominent “ingredient” involves a keen fear regarding the re-gain of the lent amount, let alone the interests.
