In response I told Wieser that unless we received a sign from the creditors that they were serious about a compromise on the reform agenda and a sensible fiscal policy made possible by meaningful debt restructuring, we would not reach 30 April without a default to the IMF. ‘Independently of our preferences and political will,’ I said, ‘our liquidity will run out well before then.’
He replied that we could last much longer by plundering the reserves of non-governmental but publicly owned institutions such as pension funds, universities, utility companies and local authorities.
‘And why would we want to do that?’ I asked. If the creditors showed no interest in negotiating in good faith, why should we continue to extract yet more flesh from the scrawny body of our society in order to service a debt to the IMF that even it considered to be ultimately unpayable?
hell yeah let all those old people die, they're not contributing to the economy anyway
