What Happens to Greece (and the Eurozone) if Syriza WIns?
Once again, Greece is in the spotlight as the country heads to the polls on January 25. In part, this election will rehash the same debates as the last ones in 2012—austerity, debt, unemployment, the euro, growth. Just like last time, expect populism, nationalism, grandstanding and fear mongering. Yet the world has also changed since 2012, and these elections can push Greece, and the Eurozone, into uncharted territory if the leftist coalition of SYRIZA wins and forms a new government. These could be the most consequential elections yet in the Eurozone, especially at a time when the European Central Bank (ECB) is preparing for a new round of quantitative easing.
