“If you insist on policies that condemn whole populations to a combination of permanent stagnation and humiliation, you will soon have to deal... with anti-Europeanist xenophobes

Just over three years ago, when I was negotiating on behalf of Greece with the German government to end the combination of unsustainable loans and hyper-austerity that are still crushing my country, I warned my interlocutors at a Eurogroup meeting of eurozone finance ministers:
