Full Circle: All Eyes on Greece Once Again
Greece, the genesis of it all, the birthplace of the European debt crisis is in the limelight once again. Can balance be restored to a country so burdened with debt, and is it in the EU’s best interest to continue to foot the bill for the catastrophe that is Greece? It’s decision time. The International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission together form the Troika. The group is jointly analyzing the viability of Greece’s long-term growth and debt reduction plans based on the countries current path. If the outlook is bright and Greece is making progress to resolve their debt then it will buy the country some time. If, on-the-other-hand, progress is bleak then the hour of truth will be close at hand. German Chancelor Angela Merkel, ECB President Mario Draghi and Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras are nervously awaiting the release of the Troika’s report, which should be completed somewhere between late September and early October. Greece’s climb towards solvency is steep and the underlying question remains; can the country return to growth and reduce its debt before it’s too late?
