Stop complaining and pay your goddamn taxes.
i mean Greece was never fit to join the eurozone in the first place, the government lied about their economy. the truth about the Greek economy is that its one that spends alot but produces little. Greeks have lived good lives compared to other Europeans, a German or Englishmen retires at 65 while a Greek retires in their 50's.
this was never gonna last even this bailout wont save Greece economists expect Greece needing another bailout in 2014. this bailout just prolongs the inevitable. Greeks have got to learn that to be able to get back on their feet they are gonna need to take a hit and live with incredibly strict economic policies. thats the only way Greece can fix itself.
