Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But anyway, this is an admission that Greece is the first guinea pig, an experiment to see if any country can survive the IMF treatment without joining the Third World.

Has anyone mentioned Latvia in Greece?

either reveals the quality of the analysis of the Greek economy that has driven the IMF's/EU advice - a bad sign surely, or demonstrates that the IMF is barely covering up for decisions

Or a combination: with both leaders and bureaucrats totally indoctrinated, they don't check the figures and rhetoric they read in the business press...
