Greece is once again locked in heated negotiations with its creditors to keep its economy solvent. A deal for a new round of funding can only be reached in exchange for further reforms. But will the Greek government actually be able to implement substantive reforms, particularly in the areas of tax administration, welfare and government corruption? Should the EU simply insist on a ‘reforms for loans’ trade-off or is there a bigger role for the EU to play in fostering domestic reform?  Are the reforms a one-sided affair or should the Eurozone rethink the pace of fiscal consolidation? With a Greek exit from the Eurozone on the line, answers to these questions are of the utmost importance over the weeks to come.
