Jan. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Greece's first "deficit" is its credibility gap, Prime Minister George Papandreou said today at a panel event at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Greek Markets Rattled as EU Says Deficit Forecasts ‘Unreliable ...

Jan. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Greek stocks and bonds tumbled after the European Commission said "severe irregularities" in the nation's statistical data leave the accuracy of the European Union's largest budget deficit in doubt.

 So, in order to gain credibility, Greece has to apply austerity measures and close its large budget. Can Greece accomplish this mission? After all, they are trying to close a fiscal deficit at an unprecedented pace... Let's gauge both their progress and the populace's reactions...

Greek Customs WorkersStrike Dents ExportsCuts Fuel Supplies‎ 

 Feb. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Greek motorists lined up at gas stations as fuel stocks dwindled while a strike by customs workers over government austerity measures stretched into a fourth day, hurting imports and exports.

The Federation of Greek Customs Workers called a three-day strike on Feb. 16 and decided yesterday to extend the action by six days to protest government austerity measures aimed at trimming Europe’s biggest budget deficit.

Greece is once again “hostage to strikes by powerful labor union groups,” theNational Federation of Greek Commerce said in an e-mailed statement. The strike is “catastrophic” for the country’s trade and industry as well as shipping, food and transport companies and the Greek consumer, said the Athens- based organization, which represents Greek commerce groups.

Exports have fallen 18 percent since the beginning of the customs strike as the shipping of goods via maritime, rail and air links is paralyzed, Christina Sakellaridi, president of the Panhellenic Union of Exporters, told private Skai radio today.

The total value of goods exported by her organization’s members reached 11.4 billion euros ($15.4 billion) in 2009, according to Central Bank of Greece data.

Customs workers in parts of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second- largest city, and on Crete, the biggest Greek island, returned to work today, the state-run Athens News Agency reported. That contradicted a statement by the customs workers’ union on its Web site that continued participation in the industrial action was “universal.”

 

Cab Drivers Join In

Greece’s taxi drivers also staged a 24-hour strike today, the second in as many weeks, to protest measures including an increase in fuel tax and the obligation to give customers receipts, part of the Greek government’s efforts to clamp down on tax evasion.

Private and public sector unions strike for 24 hours on Feb. 24 over measures introduced by Prime Minister George Papandreou’s government to reduce a budget gap of 12.7 percent of gross domestic product by 4 percentage points this year. The government has frozen wages for public workers and trimmed bonuses, while raising taxes on consumer goods such as tobacco and gasoline.

I suggest subscribers take another look at those exposed Greek banks:
