Greece is going through the biggest financial crisis in the Eurozone. One of the consequences of the country’s five-year recession is a proliferation of empty shops across Athens and all over Greece. Small businesses are closing by the day: almost a third of them have shut down in most cities.
In my point of view the evidence of so many empty shops is a more profound illustration of the crisis that the country and its people is going through and becomes a mirror of a shrinking middle class who has lost its spending power.
