In his blog and on my Facebook page I have been following the crisis in Greece since 2010. Whatever happens now, the one thing that is certain is that it is an ongoing tragedy for the people of Greece, failed by their politicians, the EU, the ECB and the IMF.
Greece is a politically volatile nation. It has strong communist sympathies, has been ruled by a military junta and now has dysfunctional political, social and economic systems. In other words it is a total mess.
