Greek negotiators should learn a little from Britain – FT.com

This is an excellent article by Bill Emmott, former editor of the Economist, and published in the FT.

via Greek negotiators should learn a little from Britain – FT.com.

Simply, the article is saying that if the UK and Greece want reforms, then the proposals should be ‘win-win’ or ideally ‘win-win-win’, with other countries benefiting.

It is time to recognize the argument of the other side too. Germany is right about reforms in Southern Europe but Southern Europe needs a fiscal boost to stimulate investment and jobs. Similarly, the UK must recognize that less red-tape must be for the benefit of all European countries.

Thoughts?
