Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

95 billion plus 108 billion in tax revenues collected would equal 203 billion.

That's about 19k euros per capita.

Something is wrong in those tax evasion projections. Greece would be collecting as much as 3x more per capita in REAL currency than is collected per capita in the USA.

It's a high amount, and it would be equivalent to the highest amount in Europe, Sweden, in real terms, but it would also mean the absolute highest amount in Europe in terms of per capita GDP.

On another topic, I found this chart as I was looking up stats on Sweden:

It shows that the country with the highest government expenditures happened to have the lowest debt to GDP (Sweden) while the country with the lowest amount of government expenditure (Japan) had the highest amount of debt to GDP.
