The Greek bailout referendum is ongoing and while waiting for the results in a few hours, it may be good for us to sift through the information and issues that come across pertaining to the Greek Crisis.
Three days ago, Greece interior ministry admitted it won’t have money to pay its June obligations to the IMF. A sizable $1.8 billion needed to be raised and from the looks of it, nobody in the EU is willing to kick the can one more time.

All of these mind-blowing events are happening within the first week only of Syriza Party”s hold on the Greek government. Yanis Varoufakis, the new finance minister, is also a blogger.
