The European debt crisis

Costas Simitis

Manchester University Press

The chapter discusses the political context within which the financial crisis in Greece developed. It is argued that the country's political leadership became complacent and was unable to either foresee the crisis or articulate a credible plan for its solution. These shortcomings reveal longer-term pathologies of Greek politics rooted in history.
