How does the word "business" translate in the Greek language? More often than not, in our quest to find the meaning of this word, we simply just look it up on...google translate, even if we think we know the answer!

 It was not a long time ago that I came across an article in a well-respected Athenian newspaper which purported to explain the causes underlying the protracted plight of the Greek economy. Given that the author is a top economic adviser to one of Greece's principal political leaders (a self-proclaimed “reformist” one, to boot), I thought it would be worthwhile to read it.
