Bonjour à tous,

Je bute sur cette expression. Il s'agit d'un texte qui parle de la situation économique désastreuse de la Grèce. Voici l'extrait :

"the country’s 150 public hospitals are accounting-free zones, which has contributed to spiralling healthcare costs"

Est-ce qu'il s'agit d'hôpitaux "totalement gratuits" ??? Merci d'avance...

    It means they do not perform any financial accounting. As a result, they do not know their costs. This is one cause of increasing health care costs.
