    German and French banks. Hence the willingness to bail Greece out.
    Not so fast there Alvin. The US tax payer last year gave the IMF an extra $100,000,000,000..... so a very good case could be made that it is the US tax payer that is bailing out Greece.

    Just saying.

    Given that the US does not have a spare 100 billion, it is in fact the Chinese, Japanese, South Koreans, Saudi's and Taiwanese who are bailing out Greece

    Yeah, but it was charged to our credit card. Right?


    Man, the stock market really loves government bailouts.

    OK..... but the US tax payer is still stuck with the 100 billion that Barry gave the IMF..... seems like 6 of one, a half dozen of the other.

    That is part of a wider 110billion euro (£95.5billion) package backed by eurozone members and the International Monetary Fund.
    France, Italy, Spain and Portugal also approved their share of a the bailout to keep Greece from imminent default as the 16 leaders from countries using the euro headed for an evening summit in Brussels.

    It appears to me that the entire world economy is struggling due to problems with money that never existed in the first place. It's bizarre.
