  • [01] High pessimism, low spending among Greek consumers

    AMNA-Nine in 10 Greeks consider that their country is in recession, compared with seven in 10 Europeans, while four in 10 Greeks say they spend all their available income to cover their basic needs. This was reported in the consumer confidence survey published by Nielsen on Tuesday.

    Greeks are also the most concerned among Europeans that the recession will persist in coming months and about their future financial and employment prospects.

    Concerning the behaviour of Greek consumers, the survey found that four in 10 have no money left over after meeting their basic needs while the rest either use their cash to pay off loans and credit cards or put it into savings accounts so that only a small percentage is spent on purchasing goods and services.

    [02] Metope removed from Parthenon temple

    AMNA/ Archaelogists examine a metope lowered on Tuesday from the Parthenon temple atop the Athens Acropolis for conservation. The 32nd metope, from the southwestern side of the Parthenon, a Classical Era temple dedicated to the mythical goddess Athena, is known as the metope of the Annunciation because it was thought to resemble the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary and is the only metope on the structure not disfigured during the early Christian era.
