... took me half an hour to get angry. actually it starts off interesting with trying to get a connection to the financial crisis - but in the end there is no link (like there should be, since Greek banks had been hit hard by the subprime-crisis).

then there is a discussion of political failures made in Greece throughout the last decades and even toetipping into the euro.

But then all the sudden there is this big bad IMF and EU and all those mean neoliberals. sorry, but this is just to simple and in the end - yes - boring left wing propaganda.

Everybody knows that washington consensus failed, but still, as Juncker said: In a situation like this, no one ever was before and therefore no one really nows the right way. But getting the household back in check must be an aim and more than trying to save AND pumping money in is hardly possible.

so i have to continue waiting for a good and not the one-sided documentary about Greece or the euro-crisis in general.
