I would like to use this blog to encourage you to consider signing a petition aimed at Congress. The US has more influence over the IMF than anybody else, and it's hard to see how or why the IMF would move away from their traditional position of cruel stupidity without real political pressure.
I've been following the news as best as I can, and I am horrified by the way the European insitutions are railroading Greece. This story may not be so well known, and what is known may be lies. It is a story that has broad global implications; it is a matter of profound concern to anyone when economic institutions can bypass sovereign governments.
It is now beyond obvious that the European institutions have been acting in bad faith from the beginning. Their idea of "negotiations" so far has been nothing better than bullying. Syriza has been repeatedly slandered, but it seems to me the Greek government has conducted itself with vastly superior grace and humanity than the bastards sitting across from them.
This link has some information about the crisis from someone better qualified than I to discuss it.
A name on a petition is better than nothing. This link will take you there. Please consider signing it.
Thank you for your attention.
