Greece is balking at privatizations

Though, this will help the country to face its public debt, estimated to more than €300 billion. Greek officials curtly replied that this represents interference in their job and they take orders only from Greek citizens. Given the context (a bailout plan for Greece, financed by EU and worldwide taxpayers), such a behavior is at least inappropriate.
