No bumps, please

Greece is at a critical crossroads once more. International markets, which are usually first to sniff out whether a country will sink or recover, are this time putting their money on the good scenario for Greece. The country is also very close to achieving a primary surplus and reaching the end of the memorandum era.

Of course, all of the events that have led to this moment mean that society and the political system have just about reached their respective limits. Any major bump in the political sphere, such as the fall of the present coalition government, could tip the scales to disaster.

What this would mean in practical terms is that all the sacrifices made by the Greek people would go to waste and all hopes of a recovery would be dashed.

What Greece needs more than anything right now is stability so that it can achieve its targets and start to see some hope ahead.
