Greece: The Criticism and Analysis Continue; Tsipras, Dimou, Spiegel and others

From The Economist

From Observing Greece

Monday may herald more positive coverage (Merkel-Tsipras talks in Berlin).

Does it depend on the exact list of Greek reforms, or on wider geopolitical issues?

- and a thoughtful analysis in some historical context, by Nikos Dimou (The Guardian)

"The causes of the crisis may be complex – but the Greeks always needed a simple and straightforward answer. They have a long history of attributing their problems to foreign powers and agents. When I was a child, it was the English (“the secret finger of the intelligence service”) who were to blame. Then, for five decades, it was the US and the CIA. In the 1980s and 1990s, Greece was the most anti-American nation in the world after Pakistan. And now the enemy is Germany. But why only Germany? After all, many factors were involved: the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and 18 eurozone states".
