ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the move of the European Union (EU) to impose a humanitarian catastrophe to the debt crisis of Greece. It mentions that EU bureaucrats declared the 125% gross domestic product ratio of Greece to be unsustainable and force the country into a bailout. It cites the evidence on how EU's policy destroyed the country's economy which include the number of Greeks living below the poverty line, increased unemployment, and the lack of liquidity in the country.
