Greece Misses 2014 Budget Deficit Targets, Adding Pressure to Bailout Talks

ATHENS, Greece – Official figures show that Greece fell well short of its budget deficit reduction targets last year, a development that's likely to add pressure on the Greek government during tortuous talks with bailout creditors. The country's statistical authority says Wednesday that the 2014 deficit was 3.5 percent of Greece's annual GDP. The new radical left-led government had already said the shortfall would be bigger than expected.
