Speaking to the central committee of his party, the Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras, stated clearly something that everyone already knows: IMF policies lead to destruction.
Additionally, he exposed smartly the irrationality of the European partners, concerning the Greek issue. As he said, on the one hand they demand the presence of IMF with its catastrophic policies in the negotiations with Greece, on the other, they don't accept IMF's proposal for cutting part of the debt. It looks like they want to secure further destruction through further recession for the Greek economy as already described by this blog.
Tsipras said that everyone knows that the IMF-inspired program has failed.
Specifically about Greece's European partners, he claimed that “if they want IMF to be part of the deal carrying its failed recipes, how is it possible to accept IMF 'à la carte'? To accept its cruel measures without its proposals for cutting debt?”
“In any case, we should not forget that IMF - it has not 'fallen' today in Greece, it is here for five years - has criminal responsibility for the situation today in the country. IMF made a mistake, as admitted itself, in the multipliers for the calculation of the recession.”
As Tsipras concluded, the IMF apologised for the mistake, but this apology did not help the people who lost their jobs to live again a life with dignity, neither fed the thousands of poor and socially excluded.
IMF's apology did not increased pensions, neither reopened small businesses which were closed. It was only a cynical confession by the technocrats, with absolutely no practical effect.
