A collision between national sovereignty and the European Union in the birthplace of democracy

Greece’s problems are formidable. A quarter of workers are unemployed, with all the human toll that implies. One meets journalists at top national dailies who have not been paid since last summer, and clerical workers in their 40s who have returned home to live with their parents. The country produces almost nothing of export value besides tourism and olive oil.
