The EU is as much to blame for the collapse in Greece's economy as Greece is itself. What's worse though it that the EU is quite happy now to enslave the entire country into a debt that it can never repay.
Umm that would be the World Bank and the IMF, the other member states, specifically the richer ones like Germany are insisting on the Austerity measures to be taken by Greece as they want to be paid back on their loans and don't want to contribute to further bailouts, but you are talking about financial mismanagement of individual countries not the whole of the EU, which incidentally were lied too by the then corrupt government of Greece. But who's responsible in the end for the misdeeds of sovereign states? Greece would be down the pan anyway, Ireland is in a similar boat, but it's not the EU it's the fault of the banks, the politicians and the tax avoidance of big business throughout the world!

I totally agree though, it's not fair to the people of Greece, but then the people must decide who is accountable and try to ascertain where that money went!
