Reporters frequently refer to items in the Portugal/Troika Memorandum as impositions, even if they were agreed to by two different Portuguese governments after the Portuguese government asked for and received foreign aid.
They are impositions like a restaurant imposes that I pay my meal after I walked in, ordered, and ate.
Still today, the government could refuse to take the money and the impositions. It could even take the country out of the Euro.
Same thing goes for Greece (and, there, the government should have taken the country out of the Euro months ago---that they continue to not do so is almost negligent).blog comments powered by Disqus
