OPINION

A clear choice

All that transpired in the Greek stock and bond markets over the last few days should be of deep concern to all those who wish to govern this country by nurturing illusions among the public.

Perhaps it proved to be a useful lesson for opposition SYRIZA, a party which appears to believe that it will act as the tough guy vis a vis the country’s European partners and subsequently will somehow manage come up with the cash it needs to finance all its promises. Not to mention that this comes at a time when Europe is entering a new crisis and the international community is having a hard time raising a few billion euros for geographically crucial Ukraine.

One way or another, the choice is clear: We either come under some kind of supervision accompanied by a safety net or we go it alone and unprotected in a rough and highly unstable global environment.
