Troika Keeps The Heat On Greece

He means the onset of winter, when cash-strapped Greeks start worrying about the price of heating fuel. A new property tax in next year?s budget, due to be presented to Parliament on November 21st, is another headache. Farmers are being asked to pay tax on their landholdings for the first time. Squeezed by five years of austerity, one-third of property owners claim they will be unable to pay up, according to a survey by the Athens Chamber of Commerce.
