Schaeuble on Greek Debt and Reforms



From Greek Reporter - Schaeuble Strikes Again: Greece Not Living Within Its Means


Athens Concerned About Possible Differences With its Creditors

Thorny issues, "such as changes to labour laws that creditors are pushing for. Among the controversial issues are laws that will make it easier for struggling employers to carry out mass dismissals, something that the IMF believes will make the Greek economy more competitive. Creditors also oppose Greek plans to bring back collective wage bargaining".

Push on talks amid fears creditors will seek more austerity, eKathimerini

"Foreign auditors want to make it easier for struggling employers to carry out mass firings and oppose Greek demands to bring back collective wage bargaining".

ESM chief to present debt proposals at Eurogroup, eKathimerini - "The Fund (IMF) wants details about debt relief for Greece along with a staff-level agreement before committing. As the IMF has differing budget forecasts from EU officials, it also wants Athens to commit to 4.2 billion euros in extra austerity after 2018, sources say".
