bullfrog 6 | 603 14 Jun 2012 #1and that Poland is the most corrupt country in EuropeSo far, so good... In fact, out of 8 European countries surveyed, all thought Germans were the hardest working bar one..That country is Greece, and who do they think are the hardest working? Themselves!! That's no joke :ONCE in a while an opinion poll throws up an insight that is very revealing; yesterday it was the Pew Global survey of European countries. Among the usual questions about attitudes to the euro and the European Union, people in eight nations (Britain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Poland and Spain) were asked which country in the European Union is the hardest-working. The Greeks ignored the obvious answer (Germany) and instead nominated themselves. (The other seven nations all plumped for Germany, as the table above shows.) Yet Greek perception is not quite as misaligned with reality as it seems.economist/blogs/graphicdetail/2012/05/greeks-say-they-are-hardest-working-european-nationAccording to the OECD, the Greeks work indeed the most in Europe (ca 2,100 hours per year vs less than 2,000 elsewhere.). But anyone who has been to Greece knows that one hour's work over there is not the same as in Germany or France..
