Six key points about Greek debt and the forthcoming election

Eurodad member Jubilee Debt Campaign have put together a briefing of six key facts about Greece’s debt ahead of the country's elections on Sunday 25th January.

The six key facts in the briefing are: 
  • European banks were bailed out, not the people of Greece
  • It was clear in 2010 that the Troika programme wouldn’t solve the problem of Greek debt
  • Syriza’s proposals to hold a debt conference have a clear precedent
  • The 2012 private creditor write-down was a flawed solution
  • If Greece defaults, it will not have to leave the Euro
  • The way the world deals with debt crises is not working
