My article for Brussels Times
I’m quoted by Claire Jones in the FT in her piece on whether the ECB might pull the plug on Greece.
“This is a game of chicken. The ECB is clearly applying pressure on Greece,” said Philippe Legrain, a visiting senior fellow at the London School of Economics’ European Institute.
“I’d be very surprised if Mr Draghi wanted to put himself on the front line,” Mr Legrain said. “I very much doubt that an unelected central banker wants to be the person who risks blowing up their own currency. What’s in it for him in being the fall guy?”
