The Maastricht criteria are the requirements countries had to fulfill to get 
accepted into the Eurozone (i.e. to use the Euro as their currency). Greece 
was accepted into the Eurozone without fulfilling those criteria because 
they promised they'd fix the problems later. (FWIW, they also "adjusted" the 
stats to fit the criteria in more than one place and the EU failed to detect 
the cheating.) This is the main reason why we have the Euro crisis now.

(Sorry for the European politics intermission, but I just had to explain the 
analogy. :-) )
