Abstract

This paper attempts to explore the effects of post-war war economic development model followed in Greece. The model is characterized by both the neglect of Greek agriculture and the emphasis on industrialization, mainly around the two major cities, Athens and Thessaloniki. The model has to develop a strong industrial sector but to inflate services and it devastated agriculture. At the regional level the uneven growth path that has been adopted perpetuated between urban and tourist areas on the one hand and the rural regions on the other. KEYWORDS: Economic development model, Greek agriculture, industrialisation, urbanisation, income disparities, regional development, economic crisis.
