Professor Nicholas Economides comments on Greece's plan to curb tax evasion by mandating digital receipts in 2020
— December 11, 2019
Excerpt from CoinDesk -- "However, economist Nicholas Economides, whose previous advisory clients include the Bank of Greece in 1993, disagreed that this policy represents a dramatic shift. To the contrary, Economides said, the Greek government has required digital receipts for tax deductibles for more than five years. If citizens are unable to show bank records or credit card statements for deductible bills, paper receipts no longer suffice. As such, he argued this is merely another modernization push."
