Greece's economic crisis is over only if you don't live there - Houston Chronicle

"The numbers are staggering. It's not just that Greece's economy shrank 26 percent in per capita terms between the middle of 2007 and the start of 2014. That, as you can see below, might have put it on par with some of the biggest calamities in economic history - it was a little better than the United States had done in the 1930s, but a little worse than Argentina had done in the 2000s - but it didn't distinguish it among them. No, it's that Greece has grown only a total of 2.8 percent - again, adjusted for its population - in the first four years of what is supposedly a recovery. To give you an idea how miserable that is, 1930s America grew 30.2 percent and 2000s Argentina grew 26.9 percent during the first four years of theirs."
