MacroPolis was launched on September 24th, 2013 with the aim of providing real insight through timely, accurate and independent analysis of the key political, economic and social developments in Greece.
What is MacroPolis?
MacroPolis is an independent analysis service providing daily insight on key political, economic and social developments in Greece. In 2018, MacroPolis entered its fifth year of operation under a subscription scheme, a business model we believe best safeguards our independence.
MacroPolis is proud to have built up a solid subscriber base including European and international institutions, central banks, political organisations, ministries outside Greece, the media, the investment community and local embassies.
We have become a trusted reference point for subscribers and readers around the world due to our to-the-point analysis of the events that have shaped the agenda in Greece and within the Eurozone.
Who are we?
MacroPolis is a team of independent analysts with years of experience covering Greece.
It was founded by Nick Malkoutzis, a journalist who has spent more than a decade covering Greece for local and international media, and Yiannis Mouzakis, who held several senior positions at Reuters for a number of years. You can find out more about our team below.
MacroPolis is self-financed and is not affiliated to any political party or corporate institution.
How do we make a difference?
MacroPolis's mission is to filter out the noise that accompanies developments and provide our readership with impartial and pertinent analysis that puts Greece in perspective.
We offer our subscribers a well-balanced mix of political insight and fact-driven analysis that provides an all-round picture of what is happening in Greece, as well as a snapshot of key events.
What do we offer?
Among the services we provide to subscribers are:
· Daily analysis on politics, economics and society
· Coverage of statistical releases from ELSTAT, Finance Ministry and Bank of Greece
· More than 400 charts of the most significant market moving indicators, with data exporting capability
· Daily e-mail bulletin that details all the analysis and data published on our site in the last 24 hours
· Weekly e-newsletter reviewing key developments, which can be read online or via free mobile apps
In 2017, MacroPolis also started producing its own reports, beginning with a political and macro overview. We also take on bespoke analysis projects for clients.
Accessing our service
Apart from our blog section, The Agora, MacroPolis stands behind a paywall, with a subscription being required to access the rest of our analysis and data. Details of our various subscription packages are available here. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

In ancient Athens, the agora was where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life. It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website. Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events unfolding in Greece and beyond.
In May 2020, we also launched a podcast called The Agora, delivering insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests. If you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora. Our show is hosted on Acast, but you can also listen to us here:
Macropolis provides you a unique service that brings together all the key statistical releases related to the Greek economy. This section allows visitors to view past releases from the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT), the Bank of Greece, Finance Ministry and others. It provides a calendar so you can see when upcoming announcements are due.
