After the 11-12 July Greek-End Schäuble has been harshly criticised for putting the possibility of a temporary Grexit on the negotiating table of the Eurogroup. In this piece, published in the LSE EUROPP Blog, I develop a counter-factual argument. I argue that intentionally or otherwise, with his strategy Schäuble has finally killed off the Grexit fairytale told so many times by Krugman, Stiglitz, Sinn, O’Rourke et al. The piece has had quite a success. On the last account it had been shared more than 1.200 times via twitter or Facebook.
