Abstract

Who carries the blame for the Greek debt crisis: the country’s government or its creditors? Lambros Fatsis writes that while there is a tendency to blame one side or the other for the crisis, both sides must take joint-responsibility for the failure to negotiate a solution. He argues that the Syriza-led government’s stubbornly uncooperative stance has undermined the country’s position, while the EU’s decision to place a premium on economic concerns at the expense of political questions has been similarly damaging.
