Anne Applebaum Quotes

The Greeks do not have the option of borrowing because nobody will lend to them.

 
Context
Greece, as a Euro member of the European Union, was able to borrow large amounts of money. However, most of it disappeared as the result of massive corruption and huge waste. The Greek government, to mask the facts, produced false economic reports to the European Union and other lenders. When this was discovered, no one was willing to lend money to Greece until there were major reforms.
