The end of the European aid programme to Greece on the 30th June and the organisation of a referendum in this country on 5th July have one point in common: they open up the prospect of ending the “IMF – Europe” era opened under the pressure of the crisis. It is necessary to come out of this on top, for three reasons:
1. To adopt national and European measures that enable Greece to return to the financial markets
2. To cease relations based on accounting conditionality and revive political cooperation
3. To clear the accounts of the “IMF – Europe” era on the basis of shared responsibilities
