By Aris Trantidis

With its deep monetary difficulty and dramatic political advancements Greece has questioned Europe and the area. What explains its long-standing difficulties and its lack of ability to reform its financial system?

Using an analytic narrative and a comparative strategy, the ebook experiences the trend of financial reforms in Greece among 1985 and 2015. It unearths that clientelism - the allocation of selective merits via political actors (patrons) to their supporters (clients) - created a powerful coverage bias that avoided the rustic from imposing deep-cutting reforms. The e-book exhibits that the clientelist approach differs from the overall snapshot of interest-group politics and that the common view of clientelism, as person trade among buyers and consumers, has no longer totally captured the wide variety and implications of this phenomenon. From this, the writer develops a concept on clientelism and policy-making, addressing key questions about the politics of monetary reform, executive autonomy and social gathering politics.

The e-book is a vital addition to the literatures on clientelism, public selection idea, and comparative political economic climate. it is going to be of key curiosity to students and scholars of ecu Union politics, fiscal coverage and celebration politics.
