To quote Paul Krugman: "The truth is that Europe’s self-styled technocrats are like medieval doctors who insisted on bleeding their patients — and when their treatment made the patients sicker, demanded even more bleeding. A “yes” vote in Greece would have condemned the country to years more of suffering under policies that haven’t worked and in fact, given the arithmetic, can’t work: austerity probably shrinks the economy faster than it reduces debt, so that all the suffering serves no purpose."®ion=opinion-c-col-left-region&WT.nav=opinion-c-col-left-region&_r=1

Personally, I think who REALLY needs to answer are the banksters who got us into this mess in the first place. Iceland had the right idea on that one.
