Re: Crisis in Greece, the Euro Area and the European Union

Of course it's wrong.

More than one necessary infrastructure project in my neck of the woods has been cancelled because the government feared the loan needed would jeopardise its rating.

As much as we might like to deny it, the west still is burdened by the Thatcherist tenet that the only thing that matters is the bottom line.
