In addition to Spain, Greece is spooking markets, with the country asking for more time to meet the conditions of its €130B rescue. That would require another €10-50B of help, Der Spiegel reports, but neither Germany nor the IMF are prepared to provide it. The IMF would only say that it will start talks with Greece tomorrow on how to bring its economic program "back on track."

    Would all the world's debt problems be solved if the Fed printed and additional $100T and lent it at low rates? Hmmmm.

    Do you mean per year? I suggest they lend it at -10% rate.

    As Greece has failed to reach it's target on austerity measures and ECB has not accepted the Greek debt as collateral, this will keep the markets very nervous of a possible default. Will it really help I wonder to keep pouring good money after bad ................
