[As the Greek politicians are drawing and re-drawing their “red lines”, their minimum thresholds against the demands of the troika, other ‘colouful’ Greek idioms come to mind, about “green horses” (meaning, imaginary realities), “black midnight” (meaning, utter ignorance) and, excuse my French, “blue ding-a-lings” (meaning, nonsensical drivel)…] In his latest intervention on the Greek issue, the famous economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman argues that the new measures proposed by the troika will not work and instead will exacerbate the problem of the Greek economy, sinking it deeper into recession. This is exactly the case; but this is not the issue.
