Greek Tragedy, Europe’s Achilles Heel?
Leo Panitch, Professor of Political Science at York University, Canada
and Editor of the Socialist Register.
As the G-20 economic summit met in Cannes last week, austerity was sweeping
Europe, the future of the Eurozone was in doubt and the Greek government was
on the verge of collapse over its proposed new debt agreement with the European
Union. The deal was reached by European leaders to stabilize the Euro and to
avoid Greek default on its debt to the banks or its leaving the euro currency zone.
Anger among Greek citizens stems from the proposed agreement’s focus on
more austerity to repay the bank loans leading to increased unemployment. A
new world recession may be drawing closer after the G-20 failed to agree on
fresh financial help for distressed countries and debt ridden Italy was forced to
agree to the International Monetary Fund monitoring of its austerity program.
