What have the Greeks produced, lately? Besides scenery.

Say what?
If all those lazy, layabout, coffee drinking/smoking Greeks all disappeared, the spectacular scenery would still be there.

Now that's a different story; the industrious ones are the only ones who would emigrate to a better place.

Having personally known many Greek families in the US, they are industrious hard working people. No better friends.

Greek-Americans have produced plenty. And I'm sure that there are many Greek expatriats who have done a lot

If you mean Greeks in Greece, I don't think much in the past 40 years, but am not sure. However, you can't condemn a 3200 year old country for 40 years.
