With Greece’s economy in desperate trouble, some Greeks are being forced to scour rubbish bins to find items to sell in the weekly market, which is run by the Garbage Collectors Association.
Don’t be surprised. Analysts expect that things in Greece will get worse before they get better; so it looks like the rubbish bazaar could represent a glimpse of the future.
