Presseurop, September 25, 2012: The speaker of the Greek parliament, Vangelis Meimarakis (New Democracy, conservative) has stepped down and asked to be 'temporarily replaced' during an investigation of money laundering claims in which he is implicated. The affair, revealed by Greek daily Real News, involves over 10 billion euros. It concerns about 30 political leaders and high-level civil servants, including seven former ministers from both the conservative ND and the socialist Pasok. All have denied the accusations. The Supreme Court and the police financial unit must determine if bribe money was used in numerous real estate deals between 2005 and 2008. The case "is embarrassing to the Villa Maximos," Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' (ND) official residence, notes Athens daily To Vima – "... a few days before tying up a tough and painful [budget] package of 11.8 billion euros in savings, this is a serious threat to the stability of the ruling coalition, confronted by an affair that is causing a political earthquake capable of overturning the tectonic plates of the political system. [...] Several members of the government have suggested that this affair fuels a climate that undermines the legitimacy of the political system" - Money laundering scandal weakens government

The fact that revenues have declined should be a glaring signal to politicians that they are past the revenue-maximizing point on the Laffer Curve.

But the government probably won’t be satisfied until everyone in the private sector is in debt to the state.
There are now 4.17 million taxpayers who owe the state money. This means that one in every two taxpayers is in arrears to the state, with 1,724,708 taxpayers facing the risk of forced collection measures. Of the 99.8 billion euros of total debt, just 10-15 billion euros is still considered to be collectible.

In other words, even though it’s mathematically possible to fix the problems, the erosion of societal capital suggests that Greece may have reached the point of collapse.

From a fiscal perspective, this chart from OECD data confirms that policy is getting worse rather than better. Measured as a share of economic output, taxes and spending have both become a bigger burden over the past 10 years.
