What you are saying is that economic collapse is being used as a weapon to force on populations the political changes they don't want.

In so many fiction books and movies, the state disappears and the world is ruled by corporations.
It would appear that the economic destruction of these European states by moneyed interests is a cogent first step to making that a reality. Why bother playing second fiddle to Politicians and pesky public servants? Do away with them altogether.
I do not see a complete take over as tenable. If a corporation only maintains profit, they will eventually bleed the golden goose dry. They have demonstrated this short term myopia over and over. The government attempts, to varying degrees of success from poorly to not so poorly, to a least nurture and maintain the golden goose. Therefore, the corporation will need some government in place. Sort of like how the tick needs the hound alive to keep producing blood.
...if it is similar to a loan you or I would get from lending institution, the majority of the loan is fake to begin with. 90% of the amount lent, is made up from thin air. Yet, the amount I pay back is "real", ergo, their profit. In this case, it was a typical IMF product. Loan a boat load of money to themselves via the troubled country's debtors.
The problem I have is how nations get themselves in a compromised position in the first place. The one guy in the video hinted that the folks who ran Greece were financially naive. Simple politicians or entrenched interests who had no clue nor care for the people of Greece.
I can see if the details were known and explained fully to the lowest denominator...
