Peace for our time in Greece?

 

Greece is on everyone's mind at the mind. In this podcast, I try to add counterweight to the growing criticism against the EU/ECB which has, predictably, risen in tandem with the desperation in Athens. I argue that a major part of the responsibility lies with the Greek government, and that the discussion on whether the Euro is fundamentally flawed is uninteresting, and essentially boring. The opening reference to Chamberlain is different from, but still inspired by, Polemic's reference here
