Yannis Ioannides on Bloomberg Radio: “No rational economic debate surrounding the Greek elections”

In a Bloomberg interview, Yannis Ioannides argues that the Greek election outcome reflects the lack of serious, informed public debate on what is needed in order for the country to remain in the euro and fulfill her obligations under the agreements with the Troika. Briefly, he directs attention to the fact that there was little if any discussion on the role of the destruction of Greek institutions as a factor in the election outcome, nor serious public debate on such problems as corruption, the need for structural reforms, reform of the tax system, implementation of pro-growth policies, the need to change pessimistic expectations, all factors that keep sinking Greece deeper into the crisis.
