Eleftherotypia - Greece | 14/02/2010

IMF undemocratic

For the left-liberal daily Eleftherotypia the real menace to Greece is not the repercussions of a new austerity programme or EU control of the Greek budget, but possible intervention by the International Monetary Fund: "The problem isn't the restriction of our sovereignty. When we entered the EU we accepted its conditions. The EU does limit our freedom as far as international agreements go - especially in the economic and social sectors. And also our entry into the economic and monetary union, the Eurozone, put an end to Greece's autonomy in matters of monetary policy. The problem is the restriction of democracy. Nothing is less democratic than the IMF. Its history bears testimony to this. The Fund's unpopular, anti-social measures have led the states that needed its help into catastrophe."
