So it looks like the EU “institutions” (the new name for the Troika) have agreed to the Greek list of reforms and, as a result, for the time being Greece avoids a crash. I have read many comments on line. I tend to gravitate to the commentary by Frances Coppola (here is an example). But I don’t have a huge amount to add myself to the debate right now. I will end this brief post by sincerely wishing that SYRIZA will succeed in reducing corruption and tax evasion. Just like so many people from the rest of Europe, however, I remain highly skeptical about this.
