Greece raised the stakes in the row over how to stabilise the euro today when prime minister George Papandreou set European leaders a deadline of next week for unveiling rescue plans for his battered economy and threatened to turn instead to the International Monetary Fund for help.
Clearly exasperated by the lack of clarity from the EU on what it might do to help resolve Greece\’s ballooning debt and deficit crisis, Papandreou effectively told European leaders it was time to put up or shut up.
If I might be of help? The International Monetary Fund is to be found here:
