    Greece is one of the countries that continues to face a financial crisis. The crisis has begun in Greece since 2007 and continues. The recent general election in Greece has led to the defeat of the leftist government. As predicted, despite the adoption of austerity policies for 11 years, Greece is still one of the most austerity-stricken countries in the EU.
