Im not sure if the greek example is a good one...what greek industry is there, apart from tourism, are there any other significant greek industries that aren't already heavily subsidised by the greek government to keep afloat...?

the greek economy is a basket case of biblical proportions and they've been in the EEC/EU for close to 3 decades...

Sure the EU will bring some immediate benefits, possibly improvements to some infrastructure projects, new signage around the place and some pretty new flags waving in the wind...

As for your other 3 examples, the Bulgaria's, Romania's and Slovenia's of the 'Union', I don't believe that they've been in the club for long enough to feel the full power of the Union in undermining local industry and living standards...
