The Greek Debt Crisis Has Been Explained In Cartoons
Greece is currently in dire straights and the country is on the verge of a huge economic meltdown which could bankrupt the entire nation.
With yesterday’s “no” vote against dramatic budget cuts, the question remains how the financially crippled nation is going to repay the €1.6 billion (£1.1bn) to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

So, luckily for us, the world’s satirical cartoonists have explained the situation better than financial jargon and complex infographics ever could.
Artists Carlos Latuff, Martin Rowson, Daryl Cagle and Nath Paresh have taken varying viewpoints on the issue and look at who is to blame for the crisis and the resulting problems which have stemmed from it.
