Comments on Barry Eichengreen "Path to Grexit tragedy paved by political incompetence", 29/06/2015
I agree with the author on the point that the current mess reflects the lack of leadership in all the major parties involved, though for quite different reasons. To me, the lack of political leadership lies in the lack of creative thinking in coming to a well considered and coordinated strategy for the Grexit, as opposed to the author's view that a Grexit will be disastrous. An orderly and well designed Grexit is likely to be beneficial to all major parties, because it can have all the advantages of within the euro zone, but have extra advantages of of more flexibility for Greece.
Both Greece and its creditors have had enough of the painful experiences and there should be a quick but orderly end to those pains.
