Δυναμική Του Δημοσίου Χρέους, Οικονομική Πολιτική Και Κοινωνική Συνοχή Στην Ελλάδα: Μία Σημείωση
[Public debt dynamics, economic policy and social cohesion in Greece: a note]


  • Mariolis, Theodore
  • Papoulis, Κostas


This paper explores the dynamics of the Greek public debt. It supports that, first, the public debt is unsustainable and, second, the reduction in government expenditures and the cut in unit labour costs in the private sector seems to be the only available, al-though too little too late ‘remedy’.
