The Greek gov­ern­ment ul­ti­mately opted for a com­pro­mise with cred­i­tors in Brus­sels, though this was the only thing it could rea­son­ably do with­out putting the coun­try at ter­ri­ble risk. It has noth­ing to brag about, as its pur­ported vic­tory is any­thing but. The truth is that Greece’s Euro­pean part­ners do not want to see the coun­try in a pro­tracted and even deeper cri­sis for geopo­lit­i­cal and other rea­sons. The gov­ern­ment needs to take ad­van­tage of the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion in Europe and the broader re­gion, even if the pol­icy mix be­ing pro­posed is wrong. Now we need a gov­ern­ment that will stop throw­ing our taxes and so­cial se­cu­rity con­tri­bu­tions into a bot­tom­less pit and start mak­ing progress on at­tract­ing in­vest­ments.
