Greece Cooks The Books

Athens has announced that its economy is 25% bigger than thought, thanks in part, to the ' round-the-clock ' duties of the country's prostitutes. The Greek authorities are revising the country's gross domestic product after deciding that the black market should be included in the figures.

" The revised GDP will include money from illegal activities such as money from cigarette and liquor smuggling, prostitution and money laundering "

the Greek economic output was 180 million euros and is expected to rise to 194 million with the ' black ' economy estimated at 60 million euros.. This rejigging avoids a ticking off from the E.U. which has the right to impose hefty fines on a euro zone country if the budget deficit rises above 3% of gross domestic product...

This sounds like a plan to me.. kudos to the Greeks for coming up with this dodge.. gets 'em off the hook and give the finger to the EU overlords..
