The Greek crisis which erupted in 2009 and is still underway will undoubtedly be the subject of many analyses and studies in the years to come. Economists, political scientists, public policy analysts and experts on European governance and policy making will continue to debate the nature and origins of the crisis, the effectiveness of the policies pursued by successive Greek governments and the role of the international creditors (EC-ECB-IMF). In view of the fact that such crises are likely to reoccur in the future in the context of the Eurozone, it is important to draw some pertinent lessons from the Greek  crisis that could pertain to other Eurozone member countries, with a special focus on the interplay between growth, sustainable public finances and social protection systems.
