The Greek Crisis- Raising the German War Bogeyman

The struggling Greek economy suffered a blow in 2011 when it appeared that it was on the verge of bankruptcy. The European Union came to the aid of its member nation and in return imposed a number of tough economic measures on the Greek people. This lead to widespread protests all over the country.

Recently, the radical leftist coalition Syriza came into power on the promise that it would end the harsh conditions faced by the Greek people. Alexis Tsipras, the new Prime Minister in trying to renegotiate Greece’s bailout terms, questioned Germany’s tough stance by stating that Germany still owed Greece over Nazi war crimes. This stand off between the new Greek government and the European Union is putting into question Greece’s membership of the European Union and possible the future of the European Union itself.

    I feel that the lifestyle of many Greeks has negatively affected the economy. Their actions have caused this national level bankruptcy and they are now facing the consequences .
