I have never heard of this guy and, therefore, this is the only article that I have read about him but, from the article:
Tsipras says that Greece lacks an industrial base, making an exit from the Euro difficult, but he thinks Syriza would be more effective at renegotiating Greece’s debt with European officials because of its harder line and outsider status. Yet he is careful to impress observers with a tempered understanding of his country’s options.
He is, after all, on a world tour to gain the legitimacy with the international power elite that he has already won with much of his own public. Earlier in January, he met with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble. In Washington he met with the IMF and the Treasury Department. And in New York, he was interviewed by the New York Times editorial board, to whom he said: “They say I am the most dangerous man in Europe. What I feel is dangerous is the policy of austerity in Europe.”
Syriza may not be the first—or even second or third—choice of international capital, so Tsipras’ pitch went, but it would be able to administer a state without imploding the entire Eurozone.
