The Troika

22 Oct

A) The “troika” was supposed to assess whether Greece had fulfilled the terms of its bailout deal, right?

B) Nobody (least of all the troika) REALLY believes Greece has come anywhere near fulfilling these terms, oder?

C) The troika has loaned them 8 billion€ of someone’s money anyway. (presumably not from Christine Lagarde’s salary)

Have I got it right so far?

CONCLUSION: the troika setup was yet another LIE.

I suppose it was dubbed “the troika” because, being Russian, it would naturally be associated with mafiosi crookedness? Very clever. That way it makes it easier to remember what exactly it was.
