Dealing with the Greek

Unless you have spent the past month in a silent monastic order you will be aware of the problems facing Greece at the moment.

The country plunged into a crisis after it revealed in October its deficit would be more than twice previous forecasts, sending shockwaves through markets worldwide and threatening the euro. The newly elected government was forced to announce austerity steps including public pay cuts and tax hikes which in turned sparked many union marches and several strikes.

There is a strong feeling that the poorer citizens of Greece are being asked to pay while wealthy Greeks who have avoided paying taxes or have made money from corruption go free.
