The Greek Debt Crisis: Suggested Solutions and Reforms
AbstractThis paper examines eight suggested solutions to the Greek debt crisis and six political and institutional reforms in order to achieve a single objective: eliminate deviations from the EU benchmark and thus transform the country into a modern EU state. In the absence of a national political consensus to tackle the debt crisis and implement political and institutional reforms, a new political force should be formed to accomplish these tasks, and also embrace the "frustrated" or "Facebook" generation’s demands for better living standards and more equitable income distribution.
