#2 Do you think that this includes those who have stopped looking for work, or the underemployed?

#3 Numbers reflect all 13 Greek regions plus Mount Athos (unlike the 49 US States reported here this morning, which failed to account the one abstaining large mystery state).

#5 Noting that CNBC describes the recession as "austerity fuelled" rather than the recession and austerity as direct consequences of the Greek's spending too much, working too little and signing up for a pan-European fantasy project.

#7 Excalibur is on to something. Every single article I looked at as a candidate to post here dutifully mentioned the "austerity fueled" concept. So did the hourly news on one of the local conservative radio stations here. Perhaps economists across the board agree that the austerity measures taken by the Greek government made Greece's situation worse. But if not, this is just another example of "Journolist-ism", where a narrow class of people almost exclusively control the most widely-available news stories.

#8 The problem was the lack of austerity (i.e. the rise in debt) before they crashed masking the real state fo the economy (for both lender and debtor)!
Germany got Exports! employing people, and Greece got an GDP boost from the borrowing.
Both parties are now worse off.
