Greece, with its heavy debt to the global financial market, was the catalyst for economic and monetary crisis in the European Union in recent years. The central question is whether the range of austerity and rigor measures established in Greece, and the legal reasoning that underlie it, articulate with the policy followed by the EU for the purpose of tackling the sovereign debt crisis and its impact on EMU. If the answer is negative, the question that then arises is whether or not Greece away gradually from several premises of the European model of public life. If the answer to the central question is positive, it will be given, in the second stage of analysis, an answer to the question of what is the nature of the economic and financial governance established during the last four years in the EU; concretely, if what characterizes this new governance is a managerial concept of modes of government, where, among other things, the law ceases to be regarded as an indispensable reference to the regulation.
