What Angela Merkel and her 'austerity' did to Greece

"The German public expected the 240-billion-euro bailout to go into poor mothers' pensions and secure the jobs of Greek fishermen. We now learn that none of that money appears to have trickled down to them; that poor mothers stand in church lines for soup, that a million Greeks no longer have health insurance, that about 50 percent of the youth remains jobless and that the money, once again, has only ensured the survival of the [capitalist] elite."  (ekathimerini.com)
