Latest austerity measures

Posted in Epirus forum

Hi to all my Greek friends,

I wonder how everyone's taking the latest move by the Greek government to introduce even harsher austerity measures in Greece in order to secure a second bailout.

The English media is reporting that the Greek nation has already been angered by its goverment's high levels of corruption and economic mismanagement and refuses to take any more budget cuts.

Some of my Greek friends have suggested that the problem lies in the age-old Greek culture of leaning towards nepotism and bribery. Seems a bit harsh, but how do you see it?

I'm interested in your comments.

Many thanks,
