Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
More likely questions, as I have no knowledge of Greece, its economy or politics.
● Tourism to Greece got hit due to great fires in recent years, origin was arson for real estate speculation?
● Great expenses for infrastructure to hold the Summer Olympics (cheating by Greek athletes a warning sign)?
● Entrance to euro zone was based on forged financial statements
● Losing competitiveness to Turkey because of euro value, perhaps Greece shouldn't block Turkey to EU (Cyprus)?
● Extensive black market in Greece to avoid paying your share of taxes .. more wealth to some, a greater deficit for the government?

● Comparison to Italy where the mafia billions keeps the economy afloat.
