One of the principal problems in Greece is the population won’t pay their taxes, avoidance is a national sport with an ineffective state apparatus for collecting it.
The civil service are over paid with gold plated pensions. Retirement at 55 on final salary pensions before the crisis was common.
They have little in the form of industry, shipping and tourism seems to be their main earner.
They have lived beyond their means for years, confident the richer EU countries would pay their bills.
It seems they are right.
