  1. 1. EMPTYING THE SCHOOL OF ATHENS A quantitative analysis of the link between the Eurozone crisis and declining worker productivity in the Greek economy

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the causes of Greece’s worker productivity declinein the aftermath of the euro crisis.
