Have no fear.  The Greek economy is not big enough to take ours down.

Thousands of Americans live in Greece and invest in our NYSE. 


And they are still not a big enough group (including all of them with all of the Greeks who also have investment accounts or did) large enough to bring down the American stock market.

Could we have done this to create problems for another country?  

 

Who started this first?  Them or us?

 

Just guessing folks....nothing else.   I know squat.

Hmmm, thanks everyone.

When I was having trouble with the Q I did talk to customer service and they took my phone order and then said they would report my problem.

No, but China's is, and their stock exchange is on the brink of crashing.

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

Completely agree.  If China continues to drop as it has, they are a big enough economy to dole out worldwide repercussions.  Shame cause I made a ton of money off of them for the past few years.  They were my best emerging market.
