Harvard explains why it featured a tragic negotiation of Tsipras

Finally, the Greek government ended up with a worse deal because it was more desperate, says mr. Μονούκιν, and adds that the referendum as a threat failed because the government was not prepared to withstand the consequences of an exit from the euro. As he says to his disciples: “never make a threat that you can’t make”.Source
