The Tragedy of Greece: A Case against Neoliberal Economics, the Domestic Political Elite, and the EU/IMF Duo

  • C. J. Polychroniou

Abstract

The crisis in Greece reflects the deep structural problems of the country's economy, its bureaucratic inefficiency, and a pervasive culture of corruption. But it also reflects the deadly failure of the neoliberal project, which has become institutionalized throughout the European Union's operational framework-with the International Monetary Fund the world's single most powerful enforcer of market fundamentalism.
