Plas­tic is the way to go

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The ini­tia­tive adopted by the Fi­nance Min­istry to com­pel cer­tain pro­fes­sion­als to ac­cept credit and debit card pay­ments is an ex­cel­lent step in the right di­rec­tion as broad­en­ing the use of plas­tic money is the most ef­fec­tive way of tack­ling the se­ri­ous is­sue of tax eva­sion. The over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of Greeks use credit and debit cards so this mea­sure should not in­con­ve­nience any­one save a few peo­ple who still use cash only or cit­i­zens who are not ac­quainted with mod­ern pay­ment meth­ods. There are, of course, some spe­cial ex­cep­tions that should be made but these need to be well founded and not just used as ex­cuses to con­tinue the party of large-scale tax eva­sion.
