Virginia politics, policy and entertainment from the Greater Richmond-Washington Metro Area perspective.

. . . and they call it austerity: part 4

Erica Alini (Macleans, Cdn.) has a small sampling of the absolutely idiotic regulations strangling the Greek economy.

Among other things . . . corporation owners must provide stool samples and chest X-rays to the Health Ministry; beer sellers are not allowed to sell anything else; and book-selling is illegal after 6PM.

Keep in mind, the supposedly enlightened “troika” – the ECB, EU, and IMF – are asking for none of these regulations to be rescinded. In the Brusselian Empire, government’s size and scope are to be as large as possible; just bleed the taxpayers dry and cut government salaries if you’re in a pinch. Reducing the damage big government does to the economy? Don’t be silly.
