Surveying the Greek Economy

Robert McDonald, The Competitiveness of the Greek Economy 2004-2008, Athens News, 2008
Robert McDonald’s book is a comprehensive survey of efforts to modernise its public and private sectors. It records the country’s legislative efforts to harmonise business, labour and education practices with the rest of the European Union and keep up with the globalised marketplace. It draws on interviews with lawmakers, the executive and businesspeople to interpret the effectiveness of those efforts. The survey is broken down into the following chapters: Economic environment, International rankings, Economic policy, Investment promotion, Administrative reform, Public enterprises and entities, Entrepreneurship, Labour, Education, Liberalisation and Privatisation.

Robert McDonald is a UK based writer and broadcaster specializing in Greek affairs. He is also a contributor to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s quarterly Country Report: Greece.
