I was recently approached with a question regarding the debt of Greece. After researching a number of Greek government websites without much luck, I decided to rethink my approach and take a different venue. I “went” to Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, which provides the European Union with statistics that enable comparisons between countries and regions. On the main page within the spotlight section I found reports in English, French and German on the Greek government deficit and debt statistics, including an extensive analysis. In addition the web site provided the reports of the past 5 years that had listed the reservations on the quality of the Greek data expressed by Eurostat, as well an an action plan/list of recommendations as implemented by December 2009.
