...imagine the trepidation of those charged with reforming Greece’s tax collection system. Rather than catalogue its deficiencies, one is tempted merely to identify what’s working, which, last time anyone checked, was virtually NOTHING.

A report published by the International Monetary Fund in December claimed roughly three-quarters of Greece’s self-employed workers declare incomes beneath the minimum taxable threshold. This includes doctors and lawyers—in other words, some of the country’s wealthiest citizens.

"Greex" are also proficient at evading sales taxes. Their underground economy is estimated to encompass 30% of all activity.

The Bank of Greece is predicting that the Greek economy will contract by 4.5 percent in 2012 and remain in mild recession next year.

The gloomy predictions were made despite the coalition government successfully negotiating financial rescue deals with both its private creditors and emergency lenders from the eurozone and IMF.

Greece continues to spend the most on arms in the EU as a percentage of GDP

The current EU-IMF bailout remains conditional on further austerity measures, including reducing pensions, the minimum-wage and civil service jobs...

However, one area of the Greek budget doesn't seem to have received much scrutiny: its huge military spending.

HOW THE WEST WAS "WON":

Michalis Sallas, executive chairman of Piraeus Bank, Greece's fourth largest, and Sophia Staikou are a Greek power couple, symbols of the fast-growth years after the country joined the euro in 2001.

But an investigation of public documents, including financial statements and property records, shows the couple may also be emblematic of the lack of transparency and weak corporate governance that have fuelled Greece's financial problems.

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said that Greek banks that lose their access to funding from the ECB during their recapitalization may receive funds from the Greek central bank's Emergency Liquidity Assistance facility, or ELA.

Half of the €50 billion EU-IMF bailout fund that Greece can access to recapitalize its banks will become available soon, Mr. Draghi said.

Greece’s patchwork system of early retirement has contributed to the out-of-control state spending that has led to Europe’s sovereign debt crisis.

Greece has promised early retirement to about 700,000 employees, or 14 percent of its work force, giving it an average retirement age of 61, one of the lowest in Europe.
