Financial illiteracy is a major social issue, especially in countries, where citizens have no experience of the current liberalism on the context of globalised financial systems. Therefore, insufficient knowledge of financial concepts has attracted the interest of goverments, enterprises, public and private organisations. As a result, recently, in the middle of the most serious fiscal and financial crisis of the last decades, greek people as citizents, professionals and enterpreneurs of every age had to understand new concepts. Given the above and also the new reality of the greek economy, we considered the asessment of the level of financial literacy of greek pharmacists and the analysis of the related factors. A structured questionaire was used, in order to study our hypothesis. The results show that the majority of greek pharmacists demonstrate low, or middle level of financial literacy, but the ones who are involved in financial reporting of their activities, tend to have a higher level of economic literacy than their coleagues.
