So, as part of their bailout, the Greek government was told it needed to privatize a lot of its government owned stuff. Everything from banks to the national lottery had to go on the auction block, to the highest bidder, as part of the IMF's requirements for the loans.
The problem is, no one wants to buy. No one in the EU or Greece itself, anyway. China and Russia are all over it, however, and that has the rest of the EU eyeing the sales warily.
I wonder, though, who did the IMF think was going to try to buy the stuff they Greeks were supposed to get rid of? Venture capitalists from Silicon Valley? Bill Gates? Angela Merkel?
