Quoteunlike New Democracy and Pasok, Syriza is not a party with a solid uniform base and well founded history, Looking at the track record of NDem and Pasok, it can't be a bad thing.Greece needs more than just an economic turnaround IMHO. Nowadays in Italy, when you buy something you always get a receipt. By law. QuoteAccording to Italian law, not only must a shopkeeper issue a receipt but those buying goods must be able to produce it on demand.This draconian system was first introduced in 1983 by the then-Minister of Finance Bruno Visentini as a desperate measure to persuade Italy's 4 million or so shopkeepers - some of them regularly declaring incomes lower than their lowest-paid workers - to pay their share of taxes. The law sparked off a national shopkeepers' strike and a political crisis that nearly brought down the government. Did Greeks fail to pay 89.5% of taxes?
