Quote from Christine Legarde on Greeks and tax evasion
"Greece, though, is another matter: in the past year Lagarde has loudly criticised the failure of rich Greeks to pay their taxes properly. “I better not say too much because, you know, when I have talked about Greece and its taxes before, I got death threats and we had to increase security,” she mutters. “But is the shipping industry really paying its taxes? Are others? I don’t think so.” by Christine Legarde in the September 12, 2014 Financial Times (in an interview under FT Lunch).
