New largesse stars in Greece’s theatre of the absurd

As the European troika prepares to unleash yet more money on Greece, the nation's debt keeps climbing. What's needed is for Greece to become a different country.

On Monday, European finance ministers agreed to the release of €6.8 billion for Greece. This followed the latest report of the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund troika on Greek reform and austerity measures.

In the grand scheme of things, another €6.8 billion for Athens hardly seems worth mentioning anymore. Much larger sums have been given out during the euro crisis, and not only to Greece.
