Summary

How did Greece lose its reliability? “The new Files” travel to Luxembourg, Brussels and Paris looking for answers to all the difficult questions that torment the Greek financial world. For the first time, Eurostat opens the doors of its headquarters in Luxembourg, and explains how the state of the Greek economy is evaluated by the Commission’s technocrats and also when, how and why Greece became the “black sheep” of the Eurozone. Also, five former Finance Ministers of the last 15 years address the crucial question if Greece entered the Economic and Monetary Union in its own right. Among them, George Alogoskoufis, the minister who carried out the 2004 census spawning a storm of reaction in Greece and the first close surveillance by the European Union, explains the motives of that move. “The new Files” look into the phenomenon of “creative logistics” and offer clues on the way in which successive Greek governments juggled with the country’s statistical data. Who made the crucial mistakes that cost Greece its national dignity and when, also what is the response of the officials who handle the delicate relationship between Greece and the Commission and what part did political games under the ECOFIN table play in the crisis?
