    Greece has a corrupt government mostly due to socialism. The baby boomer generation of Greeks all voted to give themselves a big fat pension, all the while knowing it would crash their economy in the end, and that they'd not had enough children to float the bill on down the line.

    Yiannis,  Please excuse me for responding with yet another question, but I do wonder.....Why would anyone expect the Greek government to be any less corrupt than every government in the world? 
    By their very nature, governments, run by human beings, become what those very people shape them to be.  What can the result be when those in charge are greedy, deceitful, power-hungry, selfish and in general, IMMORAL?
