Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It also feels like these tax policies mean to shift as much as the Greek public debt as possible onto Greek citizens, and recapture some of it through confiscation of property (80% of Greeks live in their own homes, well theirs and some bankers for some of them) and draining of as much of that >100 billion euros of citizens' savings as possible, to pay up the "public debt". This of course excludes the local elites above a certain level of power who are already scrambling for a share of the loot
