Ten years ago, Greece was at the centre of various Eurozone crises and went through a really turbulent time – in its economy, its politics and of course its broader society. What has happened after these tumultuous years and how has the economy been affected since the pandemic?
In this episode, Fredrik Erixon and Alex Patelis have a conversation about the post-pandemic economic recovery in Greece and Europe.
