Read this article (its in Greek): the sum total from 2009 and 2010 of money that traveled abroad was over 2 billion while the corresponding declared incomes of those that move that money abroad was (take a guess): about 5 million euro…He he, this is priceless!!! Due to the fiscal adjustment in wages we will not need to worry as to whether there was any tax evasion on all or part of the above sums, the usual suspects will pay again the bill for all the rest…

Maybe we can argue that the debt figures for Greece have an inflation factor from the latent revenues that were never entered in the state’s coffers. Here is a nice article (in Greek)  about the millions of euro that went to foreign banks in 2010 from Greeks that were declaring either no income(!) or income below the taxable limit(!). For example, there are 403 individuals that moved abroad amounts from 100K euro and above that their declared income was zero (0)!!!

A very interesting article which you should read. The now popular devaluation scenario for the Greek economy, and its focus on promoting exports (btw many Greek companies have differentiated policies wrt local Greek consumers and their innovative products never reach Greeks or reach them at far higher prices – domestic inflation that is) is not always a solution, certainly not a solution that cures massive unemployment. What do you think?
