CITY VIEWS: IS IT RIGHT GREECE SHOULD BE BAILED OUT BY THE TAXPAYER?

BILLY PRICE | CHARLES STANLEY
“I don’t think the foreign taxpayer should have had to sort out Greece’s economic problems. The International Monetary Fund should have stepped in. The recession has shown what bad news the euro is for the world economy.”

“Europe had no choice but to bail out Greece, although I can understand foreign taxpayers’ frustrations. An economy the size of Greece could not be left to rot and so countries such as Germany and France were forced to take drastic action.”

“Greece should not have been allowed to join the euro in the first place. The Eurozone was poorly constructed from the start and now they are paying the price. The EU had to step in so that order could be maintained and chaos avoided. ”
