Two-Thirds Of Greeks Say Adopting Euro Has Not Benefited Country

Five years of austerity, higher taxes, deep cuts in public spending, record suicide rates, and homelessness beyond anyone's worst forecasts... is it any wonder that, as Gallup reports, a majority of adults in the country - 55% - said in a poll that they think converting from the Greek drachma to the euro in 2001 has harmed Greece.



Perhaps most shocking is that 34% believe it has "benefited" Greece... perhaps that is the third of Greeks who have emigrated.. .or hold high office?
