  • Greek minister says Europe won't let Athens go under
    Greece?s finance minister accused creditors of trying to "terrorize" Greeks into accepting austerity, warning Europe stood to lose as much as Athens if the country is forced from the euro after a referendum on Sunday on bailout terms. After a week in which Greece defaulted, shuttered its banks and began rationing cash, Greeks vote on Sunday on whether to accept or reject tough conditions sought by international creditors to extend a lending lifeline that has kept the debt-stricken country afloat. The left-wing government is urging a "No" vote, saying Greece?s European partners are bluffing when they warn that would mean a Greek departure from Europe?s single currency, with unforeseeable consequences for Greece, Europe and the global economy.
  • China brokerages pledge to buy $19.3 billion in shares to steady plunging market
    The rout in China's highly leveraged stock market has become a major worry for international investors, who fear a meltdown could further destabilize the global economy even as Greece risks crashing out of the European common currency. China stocks had more than doubled over the past year, fueled in large part by investors using borrowed money to speculate on further gains. The brokerages met on Saturday in Beijing to discuss the market situation and expressed "full confidence" in the development of China's capital markets, a statement on the website of the Securities Association of China said.
  • A Greek challenge for 'Mr Europe' Juncker
    It's sultry early July and an emotional Jean-Claude Juncker is on the stump, calling for a 'Yes' vote in a referendum on which he says hangs the future of Europe - and his own career. "A 'Yes' ... would have a significance ... well beyond Europe," he tells voters. This was 2005 and Juncker was addressing his fellow Luxemburgers.
